The move comprises all local customers, the distribution rights for wood adhesives in India and the warehouse in Nagpur.

Dispersion glues, hot melts, urea resins

Alongside China, India is considered to be a growing giant of industrial production. Adhesives play a key role in the processing of traditional materials like wood. Rapidly growing construction and furniture industries are the main markets for wood and wood-based products. Bodo Möller Chemie will distribute the full range of Planatol’s wood adhesives, which comprise all the relevant technologies required for the market, namely dispersion glues, hot melts, urea resins and reactive PUR hot melts.

India means growth

India is one of many countries to highly appreciate the expertise of specialists like the Bodo Möller Chemie Group. The German Group entered the Indian market with its own affiliate for sales and technical consulting a few months ago. The Indian headquarters are located in Mumbai and the Group has local sales offices in Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai. In addition to the new range of Planatol products, Bodo Möller Chemie distributes products made by Huntsman Advanced Materials in the markets for adhesives, composites and electronic components. "Our strength lies in making our specialist expertise accessible on a global scale. As more than just a supplier, Bodo Möller Chemie uses its knowledge to provide advice on exactly which chemical is best suited for a particular application,” explains Frank Haug, Chairman and Managing Director of Bodo Möller Chemie GmbH.

About Planatol

Planatol has been producing industrial adhesives for the graphic arts, packaging and woodworking industries for more than 80 years. Following the acquisition of Wetzel GmbH in 2012, Planatol expanded its activities both technologically and geographically. Planatol Adhesive India was founded in 2013. "Since starting operations in India, we have successfully introduced our products to the Indian market, where they have become firmly established. In order to speed up our company’s growth path, we were looking for a distribution partner with a high level of technical expertise and a customer-centric sales team. In the Bodo Möller Chemie Group, we have found the perfect partner,” says Robert Alber, Managing Director of Planatol Wetzel GmbH.
