Advanced Energy Minerals is pleased to announce United Mineral and Chemical Corporation (UMC) as the exclusive distributor of its products in the United States.

This agreement will provide AEM with access to UMC’s existing customer base and develop new markets for its products in the United States. This will accelerate AEM’s strategy of growing its business through locally available inventories, ensuring shorter lead times for its customers.

“We are very excited about the partnership between AEM and UMC because it aligns with our global growth initiatives in creating a value-added supply chain for our customers,” said Michael Adams, CEO of AEM.

Phil Befumo, UMC’s President, says that “This agreement further iterates both companies’ willingness to drive growth and build relationships with customers in the USA ”.
