Published on 2010-02-25. Author : SpecialChem

Brenntag France opens in Amiens a new storage and distribution center of Specialty chemicals. The city of Amiens has been chosen because of its strategic logistic position.

The industrial center has a total surface of 15,000 m2 and a storage capacity of 9,000 tons. It completely meets the latest environmental and security standards.

For Yves Merolle, President of Brenntag France, "this new storage and distribution center has been built to comply with industrials requirements, operating especially in the fields of personal care, coating, polymers and detergency for which Brenntag Specialties France has developed a complete offer. Specialty chemicals distribution is one of our strategic activities which has experienced a sustained growth over the last years. With its own organisation and staff (80 highly experienced people for Specialties, 50% of them working in development and sales, in relation with our suppliers), it became necessary to invest into brand new premises to push our development for the interest of our customers".

Luc Francille, Brenntag Specialties France Director, adds "our ambition is to supply our customers with product ranges which meet their needs and enable them to create, produce and innovate in markets more and more competitive; we also want to accurately help them facing more and more demanding standards and legislations. To do so, customers will find, in our new industrial center, regulated-temperature rooms, food-dedicated rooms (for bio food), dedicated laboratories and special equipments qualified for industries of food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and coatings for building trade and car industry".

Over the last 3 years, Brenntag France has continually invested in order to improve, secure and extend, in the regions, its storage capacities of industrial chemical products, to fulfil its requirement "supply its customers with the good product, at the right time, at the right place, in all security.
