Quaker Houghton FIS Chemicals authorized distributor

FIS Chemicals are very pleased to be confirmed as dedicated distributor to the UK North Sea offshore industry for American chemicals manufacturer Quaker Houghton — effective 1st June 2024. As part of this agreement, FIS will be responsible for the efficient distribution of all offshore products in the Quaker Houghton range, which is well-established and renowned for high performance in the global offshore sector.

Effective immediately, all UK North Sea offshore industry orders for Quaker Houghton products should be placed with FIS Chemicals directly, and customers were informed of this agreement by Quaker Houghton in May 2024.


"It is our strong and mutual belief that, through this agreement, we will be able to enhance our service levels with products, supply, technical knowledge and support to existing and new customers."


FIS will hold sufficient stock levels at our HQ facilities in Aberdeenshire, Scotland to support Quaker Houghton's client base in a prompt manner, and Quaker Houghton will work closely with FIS to assist with technical expertise, where required.

Kenny Woods, CEO at FIS Chemicals: "This exciting agreement has many mutual benefits for our companies and for customers too. Quaker Houghton's product range complements our own range very well and FIS Chemicals' strategic location for the North Sea offshore market means we can offer much-reduced lead times on Quaker Houghton product supply and local technical support to customers in this region."

Gilbert van Baren, Director Operating Solutions Europe at Quaker Houghton: "FIS is a well established company benefiting from a strong presence in the UK offshore market, garnered over 40 years of trading. It is our strong and mutual belief that, through this agreement, we will be able to enhance our service levels with products, supply, technical knowledge and support to existing and new customers."

The whole FIS Chemicals team is excited by the announcement of this partnership and we look forward to supporting Quaker Houghton customers in the UK offshore sector as they pursue targets and strive for continuous improvement and high performance.
