Presenting a New Site To Improve Manufacturers' Market Growth

 

We are excited to announce we have launched a new website, http://www.palmerholland.com/work-with-us, dedicated to the implementation of sales and marketing programs for chemical manufacturers.


Now more than ever, manufacturers have an intense need to accelerate sales growth and gain market transparency. We continue to study buyer behaviors and how changes in that behavior have impacted the specialty chemical business in order to help manufacturers improve sales results and expand market visibility.    


“There is no longer one standard approach. Today's buyer interacts with suppliers and prospective suppliers through communication avenues that did not exist a few years ago,” said Mark Riemann, Vice President of Marketing. “Unlike our competition, we combine multiple sales channels with in-depth market intelligence to give clients actionable data on market trends and opportunities.”


The new website illustrates our continuous efforts to offer manufacturers customized solutions to reach new and existing customers. “Our clients report they have twice the speed to prospective customers on new projects and 8-11% faster market growth when Palmer Holland works alongside their sales team,” said Riemann.

President Obama Signs TSCA Reform Legislation

From NACD ChemBytes:

(June 22, 2016)  President Obama signed H.R. 2576, the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act that reforms the 40-year-old Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The reform bill, which overhauls our nation's chemical management system, was passed earlier this year by both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate with overwhelmingly bipartisan support. NACD will be providing a short summary and transition document for members soon to help them prepare for the near term implementation items. The association thanks all those involved over the years in making this important legislative victory possible.
