COLOGNE, Germany — Specialty chemicals provider Evonik, chemical distributor Biesterfeld Spezialchemie, and CheMondis, a leading B2B online marketplace for chemicals in Europe, announced a new cooperation agreement. Evonik’s portfolio for paints, coatings and printing inks of the Coating Additives business line is now available for online purchase on CheMondis.
Evonik and Biesterfeld are strategic partners in the coating additives segment and decided to jointly extend their portfolio on CheMondis as principal and distributor. CheMondis’ marketplace structure gives both parties the joint opportunity to establish an additional online channel supporting their existing distribution agreement. Depending on the customer’s location and requested volumes, the customer will be serviced by either Evonik directly or by its exclusive distributor Biesterfeld Spezialchemie.
“We are very much looking forward to this extended collaboration with our distribution partner Biesterfeld on CheMondis, one of the leading digital marketplaces in our industry. This is another major move on our journey of business digitalization,” said Thomas Ries, VP Channel Management of Evonik Coating Additives.
“We noticed a significant demand for online purchase opportunities during the recent weeks and month. That is why we are very excited to extend our cooperation with our long-term partner Evonik to utilise digital channels as well,” said Dr.Martin Liebenau, Business Manager CASE, Biesterfeld Spezialchemie. “CheMondis offers an excellent digital platform which provides our existing and potential customers with easy access to our portfolio.”

It is a strong sign that CheMondis is an important digital channel for manufacturers and distributors alike,” said Sebastian Brenner, Managing Director of CheMondis. “CheMondis is building the professional online network for the chemical industry, so we are extra proud to see the partners joining our marketplace together.”
