Bodo Möller Chemie now Producing in Egypt
In 2015, Bodo Möller Chemie Group, Offenbach, Germany, joined the ranks of specialty chemicals manufacturers. The Group took over the Huntsman Advanced Materials production plant in Sadat City and two sales offices with laboratories in Cairo and Alexandria in order to supply the Middle East and North Africa.
The plant has a surface area of 4,200 m² and an annual production capacity of 4,500 t of polymer material for floorings and polymer formulations. 32 employees work in the production process, which complies with European and German standards (ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001). As part of the takeover, Bodo Möller Chemie also gains distribution rights for products from the Huntsman Advanced Materials portfolio for the Middle East and North African markets. This acquisition gives the company direct access to a complete sales structure and to customer services.
"After four decades as a recognized specialist in problem-solving and sales partner to leading producers in the specialty chemicals and adhesives sector, we are now also a manufacturer with our own plant," explains Frank Haug, CEO of Bodo Möller Chemie Group. With its new business unit Polymer System House, Bodo Möller Chemie is now able to adapt the color, viscosity and reactivity of products such as polyurethanes, epoxides and silicones to meet its customers’ individual requirements. In collaboration with its in-house laboratories in Poland and Egypt, it is now able to develop polymer formulations that are specifically tailored to the customer’s application.
Entering the North African market is an effective continuation of the expansion strategy of the past few months – after establishing its own subsidiaries in Russia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, China and Dubai with sales offices in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, the company has also greatly strengthened its partnership with Huntsman Advanced Materials in Eastern Europe. "The main thrust of our strategy is to expand our business in non-EU countries in particular. This enables us to position ourselves as a global expert in special requirements in the chemical sector," adds Haug.
