The Biesterfeld Group has merged its business divisions Biesterfeld Spezialchemie and Biesterfeld International. In the process, Biesterfeld International GmbH, which specializes in international trading and essential and agricultural chemicals, was fully integrated into Biesterfeld Spezialchemie GmbH on April 1, with retroactive effect to Jan. 31, 2022. The merger will enable the company to leverage internal synergies and offer its international customers a broader product portfolio from a single source in the future.
Sergej Lazovic, who took over the management of Biesterfeld Spezialchemie GmbH in October 2021 and continued to be responsible for the business activities of Biesterfeld International, explains: "We have already made our sales activities at Biesterfeld International considerably more efficient and customer-oriented in recent years. With the merger, we are taking another big step in this direction. We will meet our customers' needs for comprehensive and holistic advice, but remain true to the core of our successful business model: the distribution of specialties, high-performance materials and additives with a high level of technical application advice complemented by our range of essential chemicals."
Peter Wilkes, member of the Executive Board of Biesterfeld AG, emphasizes: "The Basic and Specialty Chemicals divisions have both been growing very dynamically and profitably for years. With a broader product portfolio and the even stronger international presence, we want to accelerate our overall growth in the chemicals sector and further expand the global expansion of the Biesterfeld Group in a targeted manner."
