Starting in November 2009, KRAHN CHEMIE will be representing BYK in Poland. Both companies have had a successful partnership in Germany since 2004.
The new sales and distribution partnership covers the entire application spectrum of the additives developed and manufactured by BYK. In addition to the wide range of applications in the coatings segment, BYK additives are also used in the production of PVC, thermoplastics, molding compounds / composites, as well as ambient curing resins, adhesives and sealants.
Sales and storage of the products, as well as customer care services, will be handled locally in Poland by KRAHN CHEMIE Polska Sp. z o.o., a recently established KRAHN subsidiary based in Poznań.
"Expanding our cooperation enables us to substantially strengthen our product portfolio for the polish market", says Dr. Jörg Schottek, Managing Director of KRAHN CHEMIE GmbH, summing up the latest developments. "BYK is one of the leading additive suppliers, and its name is synonymous with quality and innovation. Our common goal is to succeed on the market through a strong customer focus, customer proximity, and demand-driven solutions."
