Nordmann, Rassmann acquires Melrob Group
Melrob is a specialty chemical distribution company with operations in Asia, North America and Europe. The portfolio focuses on the Performance Chemicals, Life Sciences and Bio Materials sectors.
New points of access
Through the takeover, Nordmann, Rassmann will be acquiring new points of access to the markets for industrial chemicals as well as monomers. The Hamburg-based distributor will also be gaining another selling point due to Melrob’s work in the biomaterials sector. Melrob represents a large number of prominent suppliers and, with its own production facility in Singapore, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of specialty monomers.
“Acquiring Melrob not only represents the strategic expansion of Nordmann, Rassmann’s current activities in Europe, but also a decisive step towards growing our business in both the Asia-Pacific region and North America,” explains Managing Director Dr. Gerd Bergmann.
Japan holds special position
Japan holds a special position in Nordmann, Rassmann’s newly expanded geographic presence, as the company has had successful partnerships with suppliers there for decades now. “We are especially excited to be acquiring our own subsidiary in the Japanese market and thereby be able to take advantage of new business contacts and opportunities,” Dr. Bergmann adds.
