You are...

If you are a supplier or user of polymeric materials and facing business problems about product quality? Good to know that we have decades of experience to help you to find the right solution.

Normally one has a good relation with his business relatives such as clients, suppliers or partners. However sometimes things go different from what was expected. Even then it is often solved easily by discussion between the parties involved. In some cases this does not work, for instance because there is a discussion about the cause of the problems. In such cases it can be very useful to ask an independent third party for help. Such help is more formally called arbitration. From an arbiter it can be expected that there is knowledge about the subject where the discussion is about, that there is enough distance to the parties to stay objective and that there is tact in handling such delicate circumstances.
