DKSH enters exclusive distribution agreement with ddchem in Spain, Portugal and APAC

DKSH has entered an exclusive distribution agreement with ddchem, the leading, Italy-based producer of hardeners for epoxy systems and hot melt polyamides. DKSH will provide ddchem’s products in Spain, Portugal and APAC.

Zurich, April 3, 2020 – DKSH Business Unit Performance Materials has become a key distribution partner for ddchem in Europe and APAC. Under the agreement, DKSH will provide marketing and sales, inventory, business development as well as distribution and logistics for ddchem. The product portfolio covers ddchem’s hardeners and curing agents for epoxy systems and non-reactive polyamide resins for printing inks and adhesives.

 

The products ddchem offers can be used in various applications, including protective coatings, inks, adhesives and construction (flooring). They are particularly interesting to companies producing solutions for epoxy resins, flexo inks and hot melt adhesives.

 

DKSH first partnered with ddchem in China, the Philippines and Thailand in 2017. Building on a successful foundation, ddchem once again chose DKSH as its exclusive distribution partner. DKSH distinguished itself from the competition thanks to its leading position in the distribution of specialty chemicals across Asia Pacific. DKSH supports ddchem’s expansion to the markets through its specialized and experienced marketing and sales force, extensive knowledge of the key industries in both regions and through technical capabilities based on its global network of innovation centers.

 

Dino Sprea, Owner, ddchem, commented: “We are very proud to have signed this agreement with such an important multinational distribution company in the global market. We have already been collaborating with DKSH for some years and are convinced that they are the right partner to bring our Italian excellence to the world.”

 

Ramon J. Viñas, Vice President Global Specialty Chemicals Industry, DKSH, added: “We are very happy to help ddchem expand to two additional key markets in Europe and the whole APAC region. The high-quality specialty chemicals ddchem produces complete our portfolio of epoxy systems for coatings and construction and provide unique chemistry for inks and adhesives applications for our large manufacturing customer base.”
