Over the years, AV POUND has expanded to become a substantial importer and distributor of chemical raw materials with applications in the adhesive, coatings, food, paper, plastics, agrochemicals, animal feed and rubber industries. The AV POUND group has offices and warehousing facilities in South Africa, Kenya, United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia, representing several major multinational chemical companies on an exclusive basis.
