Vinmar partners with Agilis on digitalization strategy

August 06/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Vinmar International, a global marketing and distribution company for petrochemicals and plastics, will partner with Agilis Chemicals to help execute on its digitalization strategy, according to Chemweek.

Agilis - which offers a cloud-based software solution to build branded portals for producers and distributors - will design, develop, and deploy digital solutions for Vinmar.

We work closely with our petrochemical suppliers to develop tailored business solutions and marketing programs that work for them," said Vishal Goradia, Vinmar senior vp. "The partnership with Agilis will allow us to continue to execute on this commitment and to accelerate and drive our digitalization strategy.

The effort will allow Vinmar to streamline operations and increase efficiency while maintaining high data privacy and security standards. Vinmar has a set of complex business challenges, and we are excited about working with them," said Jay Bhatia, Agilis founder and CEO. "The chemical distribution market is only at the beginning stages of a digital transformation journey."

As MRC reported earlier, Vinmar Polymers America will distribute Lanxess Corp.'s high-performance plastics to customers in North America. Thus, VPA, a unit of Houston-based Vinmar International, and Lanxess of Pittsburgh will work together to complement Lanxess' market strategy with regionally placed inventory, along with sales and technical support, officials said in a Jan. 17, 2020, news release.

Russia's output of chemical products rose in June 2020 by 2.6% year on year. However, production of basic chemicals increased year on year by 4.9% in the first six months of 2020. According to the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation, polymers in primary form accounted for the greatest increase in the output in January-June. Production of benzene was 106,000 tonnes in June 2020, compared to 110,000 tonnes a month earlier. Overall output of this product reached 721,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 3.9% year on year. June production of polymers in primary form fell to 791,000 tonnes from 820,000 tonnes in May partially because of a scheduled shutdown for maintenance at ZapSibNeftekhim. Output of polymers in primary form totalled 4,900,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 14.8%  year on year.
