At DKSH, our business partners are either clients or customers, depending on their position in the value chain and the services we provide to them. Our business model is centered on DKSH’s role as the key link between clients and customers. We help our partners in growing and adding value to their business and enable them to achieve lasting success.
As a result of our position as the leading Market Expansion Services provider with a focus on Asia, we benefit from economies of scale, unique cross-regional and cross-industry synergies and significant bargaining power with the trade. Leveraging on our strong market presence, clients can capitalize on the superior commercial terms and conditions made available by DKSH. On the other hand, our scope and scale allows us to provide our customers a comprehensive portfolio of products and services.
Our clients – manufacturers of fast moving consumer goods, luxury and lifestyle products; pharmaceuticals, consumer health products and medical devices; specialty chemicals and ingredients and advanced machinery or technical equipment – wish to sell their products in markets with high entry barriers.
Strategically, our clients may want to grow their business by increasing sales in existing markets, enhancing efficiency and margins, or launching into new markets. We offer Market Expansion Services to clients from Europe and the Americas, and increasingly also for clients originating in Asia.
We support our clients in marketing, selling and distributing their products, as well as providing after-sales services and market insight.
As the global leader in the premium chocolate business, we rely on partners with a fundamental understanding of local markets, trade and consumers. In DKSH, we have found a like-minded partner and enjoyed a significant record of achievements for more than 50 years.Ernst Tanner, Chairman and CEO of Lindt & Sprüngli AG
