Cornelius Group, an independent European distributor of high quality, innovative speciality chemicals and raw materials for the Industrial sector, has strengthened its UK sales team with two new appointments.

Nick Forster and Kelvin Farrell both join Cornelius as Area Sales Managers for the Industrial team.

Their role is to broaden an already established, yet rapidly growing customer base, for raw materials across a wide range of product solutions in paints & coatings, plastics & rubber, construction chemicals and packaging & printing

Jason Fitzgerald, Industrial Business Manager at Cornelius, said: “I am delighted to welcome both Nick and Kelvin to Cornelius. Their deep industry knowledge and experience will directly benefit the company as we execute our growth strategy. We look forward to their contributions to the achievement of our strategic objectives.”

With 25 years of experience, Nick Forster makes a move to Cornelius from Fuchs Lubricants Company, where he held the title of Sales Executive. Before that, he worked as a Technical Sales representative with Whitchem in the field of plastics, rubber and filtration – a role he held for almost seven years. 

Kelvin was previously employed by Akzo Nobel as European Area Manager and then went on to become District Sales Manager with Saint-Gobain. With 35 years of experience, Kelvin will ensure Cornelius customers receive added value solutions with tailored product offerings.

Cornelius manufactures and distributes branded and own brand speciality chemicals, raw materials and ingredients across the industrial, care and health and nutrition sectors.  

The company takes its quality and service standards seriously, by constantly striving for excellence. Its supply partners only use high quality raw materials that comply with European and national regulations and can ensure continuous supply, minimising disruption to customers’ production processes.
