Brenntag’s success is founded on our company’s unwavering commitment to our core values. All of our business activities and our relationships with our business partners are defined by the six values which set us apart from our competitors and help us deliver the best performance possible to our partners.
At Brenntag, safety always comes first. Striving for zero accidents and incidents worldwide, we aim to set industry standards for safety measures. Brenntag employees are encouraged to be leaders in their respective roles who take accountability for their work and decisions. Our employees take ownership of their work, and as such bring a high level of engagement and involvement to their business relationships.
We are committed to excellence in every aspect of our business to remain on top. To that end, we conduct all matters with the utmost degree of integrity and responsibility. We would not be the world’s leading chemical distributor if we did not make a meaningful impact to our business partners, and as such, we strive to create the highest possible value for our partners, regardless of the task at hand.
When we think of our business, we need to ask ourselves two questions: How can we help our business partners to succeed – today and in the future? What is the benefit for our partners working with us? Our strap line “ConnectingChemistry” is the ultimate answer to both of these questions.
Brenntag strives to be the industry’s most effective and preferred channel partner. Our industry and customer-focused approach to chemical distribution builds on connecting customers and suppliers in a winning partnership. Always being committed to our partners’ success, we serve as their extension, sharing our intelligence on markets, industries and applications. We support them in reacting flexibly to ever-changing market conditions and help them focus on their core business by managing their complexity. We are the only chemical distributor which complements a broad global network with outstanding local execution. Brenntag is there for its partners – anytime, anywhere.
Brenntag is truly a “people’s business”. Everything we achieve as a business is accomplished with and through our employees. They are the connection between our business partners. They connect people and build relationships. We demonstrate that the distribution of chemicals and ingredients is not just a business for us. It is an attitude. And our passion is to be the best partner connecting you as our customers and suppliers in local markets worldwide.
The “ConnectingChemistry” Campaign: Focusing on Employees
ConnectingChemistry is an integral part of Brenntag's corporate culture. Therefore it is really important that we put people at the center point of our communication as they are all making these important connections on a daily basis and are the face of Brenntag to the outside world.
The “ConnectingChemistry” slogan, reflects Brenntag’s day-to-day business and emphasize Brenntag’s center position in the value chain. Day in, day out, the global Brenntag employees connect customers and suppliers, thus forming a hub for expertise and knowledge in the many different areas of chemical distribution.
