PQ Corporation today announced that it has named Dempsey Corporation of Toronto, Ontario , as an authorized distributor of their silica products for the Canadian region, effective March 17., 2019. Dempsey Corporation will distribute PQ’s specialty silicas for personal care and flow aid applications in Canada.
Dempsey will distribute PQ’s “Sorbosil silicas”, which are used in personal care and cosmetics applications such as toothpastes.
