Brenntag and Evonik Industries step up their collaborative efforts
Since the beginning of 2014, Brenntag has been distributing Evonik’s wide portfolio of asphalt products in virtually all European countries. These collaborative efforts began in Austria as early as last fall and are being coordinated from Germany.
Jürgen Mäteling, product manager at Brenntag GmbH: “We are very pleased to be able to add Evonik specialty products from the Interface & Performance segment to our portfolio for asphalt producers. We see this as being another milestone in our close working relationship with Evonik.”
Project manager Andreas Knop adds: “The sector sets great store by fast, flexible deliveries of products that are constantly in stock – which is one of Brenntag’s strengths. With Evonik additives, we are now able to offer our customers in the asphalt industry a more complete service and can supply additional products from a single source.”
Brenntag will have exclusive distribution rights and will market the TEGO®Addibit and TEGO®Antifoam product lines, together with TEGO®Sorb for use in the asphalt market. The new business will be handled by Brenntag subsidiary the Multisol Group, utilising its operations in France and the UK.
