Brenntag's history in Brazil began in July 1995, with the acquisition of Alquímica S / A by Holland Chemical International (HCI). In September 1996, HCI reached a new stage in the Brazilian market by acquiring B.Herzog S / A.
In November 2000, Brenntag consolidates its merger with HCI. In August 2002, it acquires Fenil Química Ltda. The synergy created among the 3 companies acquired in Brazil, positioned Brenntag as one of the largest distributors in the country.
In March 2014, Brenntag Química Brasil went further increasing its competitiveness by acquiring Gafor Distribuidora.
