OFFENBACH AM MAIN, Germany – The Bodo Möller Chemie Group reports that it grew significantly in 2021. In spite of the current situation characterized by shortages of raw materials and enormous price increases in certain products, the company registered 40% growth as a supplier and application expert for specialty chemicals. Existing partnerships with leading manufacturers could be expanded even further and newly added industrial partners also supplemented the portfolio of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group.
“This development impressively confirms our strategy to link the distribution of technologically leading products of well-known manufacturers with extensive in-house expertise for their application and use. In addition, we have our own products, which we produce in our own locations. We are very thankful that in spite of the problematic global situation, which is also related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to achieve this growth,” said Frank Haug, Chairman of the Board of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group.
The group not only has its own locations throughout the world, but also a sophisticated logistics network to ensure enormous delivery reliability. In 2021, new regional branches opened in Bucharest, Romania, and in Madrid, Spain.
The company also moved into new premises at its headquarters location in Offenbach am Main, Germany. Customer Service is now located in an adjacent building of the Bodo Möller Chemie main office and a technical solutions showroom with specialty chemicals is being planned.
The group also reported cooperation with leading manufacturers of the chemical sector that were significantly expanded and exclusive sales and distribution agreements for numerous global regions. In 2021, among other things, the distribution of Henkel Adhesive Technologies for numerous market segments – including the electrical and automotive as well as the furniture and building components and surface treatment market – was successfully expanded in Europe and China. More cooperation was established with Merck, Kraton and Songwon in performance chemicals. For the CASE industry (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers), additional partnerships were formed for various sales and distribution regions with FP Pigments, Imerys and Budenheim. Additionally, a further cooperation for the plastic additives and pigments area will be completed soon.
The group reported that its Israeli branch is certified according to the ISO:9001 standard with the AS9120 extension for the aerospace sector. The in-house Adhesive Competence Center (ACC) based in Europe offers consultation on the implementation of adhesive processes, thereby helping customers to prepare their audits in accordance with DIN 2304 and DIN 6701-2. The ACC is correspondingly certified for both standards. “We are on the path to become one of the leading adhesive distributors and application experts in Europe and the world. Nowadays, the industry requires the supplier to be more knowledgeable than ever before, and this specialization on product and technical know-how has always been our mission,” Haug concluded.
