Dusseldorf, Germany, April 20, 2021 – UniteChem Group, the world’s leading supplier of light stabilizers for plastics in a broad range of high-end industrial applications, has announced that it is expanding its European footprint with a new sales office in Düsseldorf, Germany.

UniteChem has established itself as a global specialist with extensive expertise in the development and production of light stabilizers designed to extend the life of demanding plastic applications. With 20 years of market experience, it serves and collaborates with major leading brands worldwide in a highly dedicated responsive manner and with extraordinary determination to meeting its own productivity and sustainability goals while helping its customers to meet theirs.
“We are very excited to align more closely with our growing customer base in Europe,” says Jan Kreibaum, UniteChem Director for Europe and Senior Industrial Advisor – FountainVest Partners. “The Düsseldorf office will perfectly complement our new warehouse capacities in Antwerp while opening more direct business leads in the region.
