Brenntag’s growth opportunities along with its resilient business model are based on complete geographic coverage, a wide product and service portfolio and high diversity across suppliers, customers and industries.

Linking chemical manufacturers (our suppliers) and chemical users (our customers), Brenntag provides complete distribution solutions rather than just chemical products. Brenntag purchases large scale quantities of industrial and specialty chemicals from various suppliers, enabling the company to achieve economies of scale and offer to around 170,000 customers a full-line range of chemical products and value-added services.

Brenntag is the strategic partner and service provider for manufacturers of industrial and specialty chemicals at the one end and chemical users at the other end of the value chain. Brenntag stores the products it purchases in its distribution facilities, packs them into quantities the customers require and delivers them, typically in less-than-truckloads. Brenntag’s customers are active worldwide in diverse end market industries such as adhesives, paints, oil & gas, food, water treatment, personal care and pharmaceuticals. In order to be able to react quickly to the market and customers’ and suppliers’ requirements, Brenntag manages its business through its regionally structured segments in Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific.

Brenntag offers a broad range of over 10,000 products as well as extensive value-added services (such as just-in-time-delivery, product mixing, blending, repackaging, inventory management, drum return handling as well as technical and laboratory services for specialty chemicals). High diversification means that Brenntag is largely independent from the volatility of any single specific market segment or region. Brenntag is the global market leader in full-line chemical distribution. We define market leader not just by business volume but also associate it with our philosophy of continually improving the safety standards at our sites. As a responsible service provider, we continually strive to achieve further improvements in the overall safety performance in the Group.
