Brenntag Europe is pleased to announce that as of January 1, 2013, it will be distributing the full range of scale inhibition polymers for water treatment, mining and mineral processing applications from Dow Consumer & Industrial Solutions within the Central and Eastern Europe region and Turkey (CEET).
For more than a decade Brenntag, the global market leader in full-line chemical distribution, has successfully promoted a range of specialty products from Dow Consumer & Industrial Solutions (formerly Rohm and Haas) into these applications in Western Europe. Building on this experience, the company announces that it is expanding its long-standing relationship with Dow to meet the ever-changing needs of the market.
“We are pleased to further develop our long-standing and successful relationship with Brenntag across Europe,” said Hasim Cavusoglu, Regional Sales and Marketing Leader for Dow Consumer & Industrial Solutions in the CEET region. “With the team of Brenntag Specialties Europe, we have found an ideal partner to market the portfolio, offer excellent customer service and help further develop the business.”
“This is an exciting, complementary addition to our product portfolio,” commented Dr. Thomas Heinrich, European Marketing Manager for Cleaning & Water Treatment at Brenntag. “We are delighted that we will be working with Dow, a leading company in this area and having now full coverage in Europe within the aforementioned industries.”
The agreement includes the full portfolio of legacy Rohm and Haas Fabric and Surface Care specialties that have been consolidated within the Dow Consumer & Industrial Solution portfolio as a result of Dow’s acquisition of Rohm and Haas in April 2009. These specialties include the well-known family of ACUMER™ Dispersants, which are used in many core areas of the Water Treatment, Mineral Processing and Mining Markets.
