Wurth USA, the global market leader in the development, production and sale of fastening and assembly materials, and Permatex, the leading innovator in chemical technology for automotive maintenance and repair, have announced a partnership in direct response to industry supply chain challenges. The partnership focuses on creating a win-win-win centered around meeting our shared customer’s needs.
“The right products, at the right place, at the right time” said Wurth USA CEO, Aaron Brading “that is the expectation from our partners and we’re proud of the relationships we’ve developed with a trusted partner in Permatex to be able to meet both our inventory requirements and also our product quality standards.
Cargo Division Manager, Shane Sutherland who was instrumental in forming this strategic alliance, shared some examples of the partnership’s early successes. ““Wurth USA and Permatex are very closely aligned in our core values and strategies, mainly in our desire to provide high quality products that will help increase efficiencies in your workplace. We’re receiving consistent feedback from our partners at automotive dealerships and fleet maintenance facilities that they are very satisfied with Permatex products. We can see them being stored and dispensed in Würth Vending Machines and we see them being ordered frequently on wurthusa.com”.
On the Permatex side, the partnership with Wurth USA provides their innovative brand with two additional distribution channels to reach their target audience of do-it-yourselfers and professional technicians: wurthusa.com and also through 300 dedicated Würth Representatives.
“Permatex products are used every day in shops and garages across the country,” said Permatex Director of Sales, Eva Pitts, “for essential maintenance and repair jobs that sometimes can’t wait. Wurth’s extensive distribution network allows us to reach more users in more locations, delivering the products they need to get the job done and ultimately get back on the road.
“We are particularly excited to partner with Wurth’s team of knowledgeable representatives who can provide the in-person, on-site support and training our customers value. Wurth’s dedication to providing quality products with superior customer service make this partnership a great fit.”
The partnership added 160 Permatex products which include adhesives, cleaners, degreasers, epoxy, grease, sealants, super glues, thread lockers, and other specialty chemicals to Wurth USA’s robust offering of over 14,000 items to make DIYers and professional technician’s jobs easier.
Brading concluded, “Our shared goals center around the customer’s needs and being able to be a true one-stop shop for them. This partnership enhances our ability to be that for the men and women who roll up their sleeves and do the hands-on work everyday.”
