SpecialChem and MatWeb Announce a Strategic Alliance to Better Serve Suppliers and Specifiers of Specialty Chemicals and Materials

Paris, France (PRWEB) October 11, 2013

As a result of this strategic alliance between SpecialChem and MatWeb, the companies will enhance the performance of their respective Digital Marketing Services for clients as well as enrich the online experience of their community members.

By joining their respective communities, SpecialChem and MatWeb will enable their clients to reach more than 1,000,000 profiled professionals in the domain of chemicals & materials and take advantage of highly qualified traffic of over 10,000,000 visits per year, by far the worlds largest number in this industry.

Among the numerous offers planned, the allies will create a joint Global Plastics Newsletter to bring technical articles written by world class-experts and special offers for MatWeb members.

Omnexus, SpecialChems platform dedicated to plastics, will feature the polymers database of MatWeb while MatWeb users will gain access to white papers, expert content, and solution case studies from Omnexus to enhance their online experience. SpecialChem plastics clients will benefit from exposure in the MatWeb materials database.

Further, companies using SpecialChem Open Innovation services to scout new technologies related to materials will benefit from an extended pool of solvers, including metals and ceramic experts from MatWeb.

Both companies have agreed to further develop joint offers which will be communicated in the coming months.

We are very excited by this strategic move, says Christophe Cabarry, SpecialChem CEO. Our two companies are incredibly complementary in terms of offers and assets, and also in terms of culture as we share the same passion for materials.

This new alliance with SpecialChem has grown out of years of working with the SpecialChem team, says MatWeb President, Dr. Dale Kipp. By formalizing a closer relationship, we are looking forward to better serving MatWebs users with features and content that our companies will jointly provide.
