Patech Fine Chemicals appoints GMI as North American distributor

Patech Fine Chemicals Co. Ltd, based in Taipei, Taiwan, has signed a distribution agreement with Gehring-Montgomery Inc. (GMI), based in Warminster, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

The agreement will make GMI the sole distributor of Patech’s Lubricant Portfolio in the U.S.A. and Canada. GMI’s product offering will now include the Palub brand of Esters Base fluids and Additive’s products. This agreement will increase Patech’s activity in the North American lubricant market that spans Industrial, Automotive, Grease and Metalworking lubricant manufacturing companies.

Patech Fine Chemicals is an innovative company that specializes in high-quality, high-performance products for the Lubricant, Polymer, and Personal Care Industries. With a strong sustainable policy, Patech is dedicated to using renewable raw materials, and reducing its carbon footprint. 

In 2020, Patech established its first sales office in North America. Since then, Patech’s Lubricant Division’s key success in North America include developing specialty esters for organic friction modifiers, passenger car motor oils (PCMO), electric vehicle (EV) lubricants and cooling fluids, high temperature NSF HX-1 fluids, high viscosity EAL Lubricants, and self-emulsifying lubricity additives for metalworking fluids. 

Gehring-Montgomery is the U.S. subsidiary of the TER Group, a third generation family-owned distributor of fine and specialty chemicals headquartered in Hamburg, Germany. In the United States, GMI’s headquarters in Warminster consists of a 50,000 sq. ft. warehouse with its own fleet of trucks servicing the Tri-State area, along with a network of common carriers. As one of the largest distributors serving industrial lubricant and grease manufacturers in North America, Patech’s specialty product line complements and enhances GMI’s current additive portfolio.
