ChemPoint Selected as Distributor of ComStar Refrigerants in the United States
DOWNERS GROVE, Ill: ChemPoint.com Inc. (“ChemPoint”), a subsidiary of Univar Solutions Inc. (NYSE: UNVR) (“Univar Solutions” or “the Company”), a global chemical and ingredient distributor and provider of value-added services, announced today that ComStar International Inc. has chosen ChemPoint for the marketing, sales, and distribution of ComStar’s performance refrigerant products in the United States.
The ComStar RS-Series of refrigerants offer a line of zero ozone depleting and low global warming potential (GWP) solutions for a variety of industrial and commercial applications. The RS-refrigerants deliver enhanced chiller performance with a significantly lower environmental impact than older, harmful hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) and hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) chemistries with higher GWP, used in air conditioning, commercial, and industrial refrigeration, chillers, refrigerated transport, appliances, and equipment with capillary & TXV expansion devices.
“We are excited about our new partnership with ComStar. As yesterday’s harmful refrigerant technologies are phased out, it is important to select an eco-conscious, environmentally friendly refrigerant,” remarked Rick Hoener, global managing director for ChemPoint. “ComStar’s advanced refrigerants are recognized for their quality and low GWP. Their 45 years of experience in manufacturing environmentally friendly chemistries is a perfect match with ChemPoint’s agile and innovative digital approach to providing superior customer service to the trade professional market.”
While ComStar will continue to develop and deliver innovative refrigerant solutions for the consumer and industrial end markets such as aerospace, automotive, chemical processing, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and more, ChemPoint will leverage its technical expertise and high service level to reach new markets and applications.
Steven Mella, chief executive officer of ComStar added, “ComStar manufactures a comprehensive product line of environmentally safe, industrial strength chemical products for the trade professional. ChemPoint’s unique customer support platforms set them apart from chemical distribution companies of the past. We’re confident that ChemPoint’s outreach tools and customer driven services will help extend the reach of ComStar’s state-of-the-art low GWP retrofit refrigerants, ultimately helping to reduce the carbon footprint of refrigerants.”
