HIGH POINT – AkzoNobel, which manufacturers the Chemcraft brand of industrial wood coatings, has added Horizon Forest Products to its growing distribution network. Horizon began its partnership with AkzoNobel and became a Chemcraft distributor in May.

“Horizon Forest Products positions the Chemcraft brand in key North Carolina cities, and it has a loyal customer base that can now take advantage of our high-quality line of wood coatings,” said Ron Cooper, AkzoNobel’s Chemcraft distribution segment manager, adding that AkzoNobel is pleased to “have it in the Chemcraft family with product made at our High Point site.”
