PLANO, TX – Viachem Ltd., a privately held fine- and specialty-chemical sales and marketing company, has reported 270 percent growth for the year ending 2009. The company attributes the record sales increase to new and returning producer-partner relationships as well as increasing industry interest in Viachem’s model for serving the fine- and specialty-chemical needs of end-use customers and chemical producers alike.
The results showed significant progress in profitability for 2009, as well as a projected doubling of sales for 2010. Mike Efting, President of Viachem, commented, “We’re anticipating a 392 percent increase this year over 2008, which is unheard of in this economic climate. What that tells us is that specialty and fine chemical producers have a real need for the services we provide. Viachem extends our services beyond the usual logistics, warehousing and repacking provided by most distributors, with a focus on providing comprehensive market analysis, prospect qualification, marketing programs and expert sales representation.”
“Our producer partners have the direct-sales resources to reach their large strategic customers, but they rely on Viachem to source and sell the secondary customer opportunities that may not be cost effective to pursue directly. Viachem’s dedicated sales and marketing team, which blends comprehensive sales and service support with technical and formulation expertise, deliver those opportunities time and again for our partners,” added Efting.
