DKSH Enters Partnership with Vink Chemicals in Australia and New Zealand

DKSH Australia and New Zealand has partnered with Vink Chemicals, a leading producer of technical biocides for industrial applications.

Zurich, August 23, 2021 – DKSH’s Business Unit Performance Materials, a leading distributor of specialty chemicals and ingredients, will provide marketing and sales, distribution and logistics, business development, and customer management for Vink Chemicals’ technical biocide product portfolio in Australia and New Zealand.

 

Vink Chemicals’ technical biocides are used in various industrial applications, including coatings, adhesives, mining, and oil & gas. The company formulates its biocides with various antimicrobial substances, such as isothiazolinones and formaldehyde releasers and develops plant hygiene concepts for tailor-made solutions.

 

DKSH was chosen for its expertise in the specialty chemicals industry, proven track record as a trusted distribution partner, and the largest industrial specialty sales team in the region.

 

Chief Vijay Nair, Marketing Director, MEA, APAC, Vink Chemicals said: “Vink Chemicals has gained market share in the countries it has entered by adopting the strategy of working closely with the customers to ensure optimum cost-effective biocide recommendations based on the scientific evaluation. In addition, the well-established brands like Vinkocide, Parmetol and Grotanol are already approved with the majority of multinational manufacturing companies hence partnering with an established distributor like DKSH provides the route-to-market for us to serve these companies in Australia and New Zealand. Further, these customers will soon be benefiting from our new production hygiene concepts and our portfolio of non-biocidal system cleaners which is a major leap towards green chemistry.”

 

Ramon J. Viñas, Vice President, Global Specialty Chemicals Industry, Performance Materials, and Ben Hopkins, Senior Director, Performance Materials, Australia & New Zealand, DKSH, jointly added: “We are very pleased to expand Vink Chemicals’ technical biocides to our large customer base of manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand, in addition to the cooperation that we already have for various territories in Europe and Southeast Asia. The products are an excellent fit for our specialty chemicals portfolio, and we look forward to increasing our mutual market coverage in this sector.”
