Business Wire

LA MIRADA, Calif. -- November 13, 2012

HORN, a leading national distributor, supplier, marketer, and manufacturer of
specialty ingredients, raw materials and chemicals, announced a new
partnership with Honeywell to market and sell Honeywell’s A-C^® specialty
additives in 11 western states (CA, WA, OR, MO, WY, CO, UT, ID, NV, AZ and NM)
and four southern states (TX, OK, AR and LA). The line will be handled by
HORN’s Coating & Building Materials business unit and Advanced Materials
business unit.

Honeywell has a versatile line of A-C^® additives. With more than five decades
of expertise in the development of low-molecular-weight polyethylene polymers,
they have one of the most extensive lines of polyethylene waxes.

Bob Ahn, HORN’s Industrial Division-President, commented, “HORN has been
working with some of the leading producers of specialty chemicals for more
than 50 years. As such, HORN is very pleased to establish our partnership with
Honeywell across our entire territory base. The addition of Honeywell’s
extensive line of polyethylene waxes is a complementary fit within our product
portfolio of raw materials. We are optimistic that leveraging our capabilities
will be most beneficial to our customer base.”
