22.10.2012 | DKSH, the leading Market Expansion Services Group with a focus on Asia, and Tagra, a premier producer of stabilized active ingredients, have entered into a strategic regional partnership covering China, India, Korea, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
Zurich, Switzerland, October 22, 2012 – DKSH Business Unit Performance Materials, a leading specialty chemicals distributor, was appointed as distributor for Tagra’s range of encapsulated actives, oils and pigments. The products are developed and produced by applying Tagra’s cutting-edge manufacturing technology, RND™ (Release On Demand), which seals each micro-capped ingredient from chemical and cross-link reactions, degradation, color change or loss of potency during production and for extended periods thereafter.
Under the agreement DKSH provides marketing, sales, logistics and distribution services to Tagra in China, India, Korea, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The regional contract was signed in August 2012 at Tagra’s headquarters in Tel Aviv, Israel.
“We are delighted that Tagra has chosen DKSH as their distribution partner across Asia because of our excellent reputation in the personal care industry. Tagra’s unique technology makes its ingredients not only stable and durable but enables personal care products to retain all the effectiveness that consumers want. In addition, through five innovation centers in the region, we are able to offer first-class technical support and formulation services and look forwarding to offering new and exciting formulations with Tagra’s ingredients,” comments Cesar Saez, Vice President, Business Line Personal Care Industry, DKSH Performance Materials.
