With a range of over 3,000 silicone products, WACKER SILICONES, one of the Group’s five business divisions, ranks among the world’s largest manufacturers of silanes and silicones. Thanks to their highly diverse properties, silicones offer virtually unlimited potential for intelligent, customized solutions in numerous sectors. In addition, WACKER BIOSOLUTIONS, the WACKER Group’s life science division, offers tailored and innovative solutions and products for the food, pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries based on advanced biotech processes.
To position itself for sustained sales and earnings growth, WACKER decided to address high-growth markets, namely emerging ones in Asia. In order to gain access to the extremely fragmented parts of Asian markets, the leading specialty chemicals company was looking for a strong partner with in-depth sales and marketing know-how. This would help strengthen its presence and footprint in the Asian region.
