PMD becomes exclusive distributor of Diversey brandTuesday, March 28, 2017
Local company Pioneer Manufacturing Distribution Ltd (PMD) has been selected by Fortune 500 company Sealed Air Corporation to distribute its food safety and security and hygiene products, including those under the brand Diversey.
The announcement of the local distributorship was made earlier this month by managing director of PMD Alfred Thomas at the Terra Nova Hotel in Kingston. He explained that Sealed Air was in search of a local company which had as its hallmark, focus on and commitment to good customer service.
"The agreement was a timely one in that it will allow PMD to contribute to higher productivity and operational efficiencies, in keeping with the Government’s thrust towards economic growth," the managing director is quoted in a release from the company.
"Our team members are fully trained to also provide technical advice on the use of the chemicals and machines supplied by the company, with emphasis on training of our customer service representatives so as to achieve best results from the products," Thomas stated, highlighting the strength of the company’s service values.
The relationship between the local company and the US manufacturer began in 2014 when PMD was appointed as exclusive distributor of the Sealed Air Food Care & Product Care line in Jamaica, thus providing major food-and beverage-manufacturing companies with hygiene chemicals and packaging materials.
Two years later, in 2016, the product line was expanded to include Diversey Care products such as cleaning, lubrication and sanitation chemicals used by hotels, hospitals and schools – some of which were introduced last Wednesday to current and potential customers.
In addition to the Diversey brand, which Sealed Air Corporation acquired in its portfolio in 2011, the US-based, Fortune 500 company also carries the Cryovac food-packaging solution and Bubble Wrap cushioning, which it manufactures. Sealed Air employs some 24,000 people.
