West African Market – A Great Potential
Already at the end of 2015 the Bodo Möller Group opened up Egypt by taking over the highly modern production plant of Huntsman Advanced Materials in Sadat City and two sales offices with laboratories in Cairo and Alexandria.
The comprehensive distribution activities in the North and West African region cover now Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria. In addition, there is a close cooperation with the Middle East through the subsidiary in Dubai. Haug sees great potential: "The West African market is experiencing an exciting phase, as this country offers many development opportunities and there is a strong demand for products and industrial sectors that we serve.
"With the expansion in the West African market, we are effectively continuing the expansion strategy of the recent years. In this way, we are able to expand existing trading cooperation and win new business partners
," says Haug. Customer-oriented consultation and on-site presence create the company's added value: "The manager of the branch Lionel Breuilly and his French and Arabic speaking team will use their local presence and local warehouses to integrate their technical knowledge and sales experience into this market as best as possible
." With this new branch the number of employees of Bodo Möller Chemie Group rises to almost 200.
