We are at the Interface
Our customers are the major chemical producers on the one hand, and the processing industry on the other hand. The chemical producers entrust the distribution of their products to us. Thus, they are able to save the costs involved in running an in-house distribution organisation. Moreover, our distribution centers are able to store and distribute large quantities of liquid and solid materials to suit the requirements of the market.
Hence, manufacturers can avoid high investments involved in the environmentally compatible handling and transportation of dangerous materials.
The processing industry expects us to provide for a smooth supply of industrial and speciality chemicals of any kind. Reliability, just-in-time delivery and safety are of critical importance.
Equally, our customers appreciate qualified and application-oriented consulting services. This means to us not only to handle chemicals in an efficient and creative manner, but also to treat information received the same way as a “raw material”. To this extent, we are in permanent contact with our customers, keep track of publications, identify market trends and maintain a formal and informal exchange of knowledge and know-how.
