BELLEVUE, Wash.

ChemPoint.com, Inc. (“ChemPoint”), a subsidiary of Univar Inc. (NYSE: UNVR), and a leader in the marketing, sales, and distribution of specialty and fine chemicals, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Tomlin Scientific, Inc (“TSI”), a premiere manufacturer of custom formulated heavy duty industrial greases and other MRO solutions, to carry their Tomlith line of lithium complex and lithium 12-hydroxy greases. Under the agreement, effective July 1, 2016, ChemPoint will manage order placement, fulfillment, and technical support for Tomlith general, specialty, and automotive greases.

The Tomlith series of lithium greases from TSI are designed for use in multiple industries and a variety of applications with varying loads, temperatures, and speeds. The greases have excellent film-forming strength, which has proven success in reducing wear and corrosion in mechanical components, resulting in longer times between maintenance intervals. Tomlith greases are custom-formulated using specialty additives that impart outstanding extreme pressure performance properties, typically resulting in longer machine life.

“We’re very pleased for this opportunity to partner with TSI to launch their high-performance lithium grease product line as part of the ChemPoint MRO lubricant portfolio,” said Steve Savio, Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO) Product Manager at ChemPoint. “Tomlith greases are proven to withstand harsh mechanical environments in many different industrial applications, helping protect large equipment investments and maximizing the lifetime of machinery. We’re looking forward to working with TSI and introducing their house brand to the markets we serve.”

“ChemPoint is a global leader in technical sales and product distribution,” said Darius Faizi, Technical Director at Tomlin Scientific, Inc. “What impresses me about their targeted sales efforts is their approach to the digital space, which we believe at Tomlin Scientific is a technique that is becoming more and more mainstream, and we feel that this approach will extend our product presence to those who could benefit most from our products. Coupled with ChemPoint’s outstanding track record of sales support and customer service, you have a team that cannot be beat!”
