OBERHAUSEN -- Oxea, a leading international manufacturer of oxo intermediates and oxo derivatives, has appointed the Rotterdam based IMCD Group as its exclusive European distributor for its line of Alkyl Amines. These chemicals are essentials for a variety of uses in industries such as life sciences or pharmaceuticals. Among others, Alkyl Amines are required for the manufacturing of rubber additives, polymers, dyes, corrosion inhibitors or fuel additives. With IMCD as the new distributor Oxea can now better serve the broad customer base requesting smaller product quantities.

"In IMCD we selected a professional, application and market driven distribution partner with excellent reputation and technical expertise," said Michael Harbich, European Marketing Manager at Oxea. "Excellent product quality and reliable supply have already made us a market leader in the Amines merchant market. By working with IMCD we strengthen our market position and reach new customers. This appointment is therefore in line with our strategy to grow our derivatives business further," he added.

"We very much look forward to this important new partnership with Oxea for the Alkyl Amines," said Cyrille Mouza, European Product Manager at IMCD "The product range fits perfectly with our current portfolio and further strengthens our specialty product offering. Through our proven European product management model, warehousing and market focused networks we will simplify and enhance the business for Oxea and offer a premium service to all customers," he continued.
