STOKO® Skin Care by Evonik, a world leader in the away-from-home skin care/hand hygiene market, and Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes (SWAF), a world leader in high-performance automotive, fleet and aerospace coatings, today announced the launch of a new distribution-program partnership.

Under the terms of the partnership, STOKO® Skin Care by Evonik will supply its quality skin care and hand hygiene products to the more than 200 SWAF Stores and Technical Training Centers across North America. In addition, working through Sherwin-Williams’s Associated Products Marketing Department, the STOKO® Skin Care by Evonik sales team will assist the SWAF field sales steam in the promotion of a complete comprehensive skin care program designed to meet the unique demands of the automotive work force.

The new program complements Sherwin-Williams’s broad offering of associated products for automotive collision repair shops, production shops, new car dealers, and car reconditioners. It also will increase the availability of STOKO® products to the associated automotive products market.

“Evonik Industries has sustained a very long and successful relationship with Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes, an association that began with the supply of colorants, aerospace composites, carbon black, and other specialty chemicals and now extends to the STOKO® Skin Care by Evonik line,” observes David Swanson, Senior Regional Manager, STOKO® Skin Care by Evonik, who is coordinating the new partnership. “We are excited to have been chosen by Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes to provide a skin care program that will meet the special needs of its clients as well as to work side-by-side with the SWAF sales team in the field to present the program and the important benefits it will provide.”
