Krahn Chemie Becomes Distribution Partner of Ferro
In January 2015 the Krahn Chemie Group, Hamburg, Germany, has taken over the distribution of the specialty plasticizers of Ferro (Belgium) S.p.r.l. in the regions Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux and Poland. Ferro is already a longstanding partner of Pietro Carini S.p.A. in Italy which has been part of the Krahn Chemie Group since April 2014. The subsidiaries ICH Benelux and Krahn Chemie Polska will develop the regions Benelux and Poland.
Ferro´s plasticizer portfolio consists of dibenzoates, polymeric plasticizers and benzyl phthalates. These specialty products are used in a broad range of applications such as flexible PVC, paints and coatings, adhesives, caulks and sealants.
The distribution of plasticizers is one of Krahn Chemie´s core activities. Ferro’s products are a complementary addition to Krahn Chemie´s existing product range. Apart from FERRO’s products, Krahn Chemie also distributes the Jayflex plasticizers of ExxonMobil Chemical and the non-phthalate plasticizers Oxsoft and Oxblue of Oxea Chemicals.
“We are delighted about Ferro´s decision which fits perfectly in our strategy”, says Axel Sebbesse, Managing Director of Krahn Chemie GmbH. “Plasticizers are clearly our business. By being the distribution partner of choice for ExxonMobil Chemical, OXEA Chemicals and now also Ferro it is right to say that we can offer our customers now the widest range of plasticizers in Europe."
