“We will foster our leading position as a value-added service provider and reliable distribution partner to our existing and new customers.”
With this acquisition, Brenntag Essentials expands its business into key focus markets in Asia Pacific, including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
This is an additional step in Brenntag’s ongoing transformation process, driving its stringent execution of the Brenntag Essentials strategy to strengthen local capabilities and market coverage in high growth markets like Asia-Pacific.
