Evonik expands Personal Care distribution with Glenn Corporation into Florida

The Evonik personal care portfolio consists of a unique and comprehensive range of organic and silicone-based specialties designed as raw materials for personal care products and active ingredients for the protection of skin and hair.

Glenn, A KODA Distribution Company, will service Florida with local warehousing in both Savannah, GA, and southern Florida.

Glenn and Evonik have a 25 year history servicing the Personal Care and Color Cosmetics markets. The geographic extension into Florida follows the consistent growth achieved by Glenn in the southeastern region over the last four years, as well as the increased market penetration with Evonik’s product line across the West Coast, Southwest, Midwest and Central Plains of the United States.

“As a premier supplier of Personal Care raw materials into the marketplace, we are excited to announce this alignment with Glenn as we continue to delight our customers with products and services,” comments Paul Washlock, Vice President, Personal Care, North America, Evonik Corporation.

Jerry Williams, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Glenn said, “With our growth of the Evonik Personal Care portfolio year after year, and a strong opportunity pipeline in place, we feel that the expansion to Florida is a logical step toward building continued revenue streams. Our customers in Florida will benefit from the full value of Glenn’s differentiated expertise, ensuring the highest level of technical and marketing support.”
