LORD Corp. – maker of Fusor Aftermarket Repair Adhesives for the automotive collision repair market – has entered into an exclusive distribution relationship with Saint-Gobain to bring Fusor Aftermarket Repair Adhesives to the North American collision repair industry as a member of the Refinish Solutions Group.
Refinish Solutions Group (RSG) is a network of industry leaders committed to helping collision shops optimize their refinish process and outcomes to improve profitability for shops, while maintaining the product and technical expertise of its network partners. Fusor will now be part of the full line of products that Saint-Gobain distributes to body shops in the US, Canada and Mexico. LORD will continue to provide support and supply adhesives directly to the OEMs and their distributors to further enhance Fusor’s longstanding OEM connection.
According to Doug Lorenz, president, Automotive, Industrial and Electronic Assembly at LORD Corp., the commercial relationship with Saint-Gobain was formed to address the industry need for having Fusor available as part of a one-stop shopping experience.
“Body shops often want to purchase key materials from one point of contact,” said Lorenz. “The Fusor product line is known for its numerous OEM approvals and expertise in providing collision repair adhesive solutions. Saint-Gobain’s RSG has aligned the highest-quality brands to bring a full solution offering to the collision industry and we are excited for Fusor to join the RSG offering.”
“We chose to work with LORD Corp. and add the Fusor brand because they are the leader in the aftermarket adhesive category,” said Ron Cuccia, North American Sales Manager at Saint-Gobain. “They are continually first-to-market with innovative, OEM-approved products and repair solutions that benefit North American repair shops and vehicle owners.”
Saint-Gobain will distribute the entire Fusor product line and the changeover will be virtually transparent, the two companies say.
Additional details regarding the process for ordering Fusor products from Saint-Gobain will be coming soon. All technical questions will continued to be answered by the Fusor experts at 1-877-ASK-LORD (275-5673) or 1-800-234-3876.
