 KIRKLAND, Wash., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Van Waters & Rogers Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Univar Corp. (NYSE, PSE: UVX), North America's leading distributor of industrial chemicals, announced today that it has finalized its purchase of the Canadian chemical distribution business of Harcros Chemicals Canada Inc.
