Perstorp to strengthen sales and development in the Benelux market

As of October 2012, the Barentz Group will be responsible for distributing a wider range of Perstorp’s products including the range of polyalcohols, caprolactones and specialty polymers. These products are mainly aimed at customers in a number of key segments such as adhesives, TPUs, plastics, as well as resins and coatings.

This collaboration is an extension to the previous arrangements Perstorp has had with Barentz for selected product groups.

“We see natural synergy between Perstorp and the Barentz Group for distributing specialty chemicals in the Benelux market. Our focus to develop the specialties range is best supported by a local partner with the ability to understand customer requirements, as well as our product specifics to enable future development. Barentz’s track record has given us the confidence to extend our collaboration for the years to come,” says Per Westberg.

Barentz Group is a privately owned company founded in 1953 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Today Barentz Group is a leading Pan European distributor of ingredients and additives for the food, pharmaceutical & cosmetic, chemical and animal nutrition industries. The group has an European presence and employs more than 500 employees with total sales of more than €600M in 2011.

The recently created new JV between the chemical division of Barentz and Ravago Chemical Distribution, with a new name and logo, BRCS, offers an extraordinarily comprehensive range of speciality chemical additives for many applications.
