Maroon Group Hires Technical Manager Consultant for Resins

May 24, 2019

Maroon Group LLC, a national distributor of specialty chemicals and ingredients, is proud to announce the addition of Jacques Poincloux as a Technical Manager Consultant for Resins. With over 40 years of experience in the polymer industry, Jacques brings polished skills in epoxy resin chemistry and applications, as well as formulation, product development, technical services and extensive customer support, both on a local and global basis.

Jacques will serve as Maroon Group's CASE & Plastics in-house subject matter expert in the realm of epoxy chemistry for coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers, construction, and composites. Additionally, he will provide technical support nationally for our CASE Account Managers, work directly with customers on providing formulation support for key projects, and serve as an extension of our principal partners’ technical support groups.

"We've been fortunate here on the East Coast to have worked with Jacques since we began our relationship with Huntsman Advanced Materials back in 2014," Willian Nicholas, Maroon Group's Vice President of Sales - Eastern Region, said. “Having benefitted many times from the tremendous depth of experience he commands from his time at Union Carbide, Ciba Geigy, and, most recently Huntsman, we naturally jumped at the opportunity to bring him on board. As the available resources of customers and manufacturers alike are continually strained, we recognize an opportunity to bring value to our partners by having a strong, dedicated technical resource like Jacques who can help bridge the gap in expertise often being the critical link making the difference between failure and success."
