Hamburg/Germany-based chemicals distributor Krahn Chemie has acquired ICH Benelux BV, with headquarters in Wormerveer, Netherlands. The company group also includes the subsidiaries Technoplan Farbtechnik GmbH & Co. KG in Bottrop/Germany and ICH Poland SP. z.o.o. in Poznan/Poland. The Dutch Group, which employs 35 people, has its focus on the coatings industry which it supplies with raw materials and a comprehensive range of technical services.

The acquisition enables Krahn Chemie to develop its regional position in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and also strengthens the sales team in the European key markets Germany and Poland. As the Dutch distributor works together with leading European producers of coating raw materials, the transaction will also enhance the German company’s existing product portfolio particularly with pigments and colour solution systems. A significant strengthening of Krahn’s services for the coatings industry is the integration of Technoplan and its extensive technical service and in-house laboratory capabilities. Technoplan offers customers tailor-made solutions, for example the optimization of formulations and the development of tinting systems.
