Krahn Chemie becomes new distribution partner of Ferro

Monday, 2 February 2015

In January 2015 the Hamburg-based Krahn Chemie Group has taken over the distribution of the specialty plasticisers of Ferro (Belgium) S.p.r.l. in 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.

Distribution of plasticisers is a core activity

Ferro’s plasticiser portfolio consists of dibenzoates, polymeric plasticisers 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 plasticisers 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” plasticisers of ExxonMobil Chemical and the non-phthalate plasticizers "Oxsoft” and "Oxblue” of Oxea Chemicals.

Pleased with this new alliance

The decision to reorganise the existing distribution network is based on Ferro`s strategy of close collaboration with a partner who has a deep understanding of the European plasticisers market.

"We are delighted about Ferro´s decision which fits perfectly in our strategy”, says Axel Sebbesse, Managing Director of Krahn Chemie GmbH. "Plasticisers 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 a wide range of plasticisers in Europe. We are very much looking forward to our expanded cooperation with Ferro.”

"We really appreciate and value the performance of Pietro Carini in Italy for many years now”, says Lia Jacobs, Business Manager of Ferro. ”As the Krahn Chemie Group has successfully demonstrated that it has extensive market know-how in the other regions as well, we are pleased with this new alliance.”
