Bodo Möller Chemie Group and BASF SE are deepening their long-standing partnership and establishing a close collaboration in Northwest Africa. From now on, Bodo Möller Chemie will support the sales and distribution of resins and performance additives for paints, inks and coatings in Maghreb and the mainly francophone countries in the Northwest of Africa. The recently inaugurated office and warehouse in Casablanca, Morocco, will serve as a hub into the region.
Quality and know-how
The main focus of the collaboration with BASF in the area is the paint, inks and coatings Industry, with high quality resins and the proven performance additives product line of BASF. With the latest collaboration, the Bodo Möller Chemie Group not only solidifies the long-standing trustful partnership with BASF, but also confirms its commitment as one of the leading distributors of speciality chemicals to invest in the African market and thus strengthen its global position in the coatings sector. The Bodo Möller Chemie Group and BASF have been co-operating in various product lines for many years throughout the world:
"The close and long-standing partnership with BASF is based on a joint value concept of offering sustainable solutions to our customers as well as an in-depth understanding of the needs of this market. The African continent offers an enormous potential, but also requires a high level of customisation. Our application know-how and BASF’s technical support and product quality constitute an ideal foundation to sustainably develop the business in Africa,” says Frank Haug Chairman of the Board of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group. "Providing logistic support and warehousing locally plus competent technical support in the region is the winning combination for our customers in Maghreb and beyond,” adds Volker Oehl, Director Business Development for CASE at Bodo Möller Chemie.
"We are very excited about our new co-operation with Bodo Möller in Northwest Africa. The region contains a lot of growth potential in paints, inks and coatings. Together, we are looking forward to better serving our customers with strengthened technical and logistic capabilities," adds Erkin Ataman, Head of Sales, Dispersions and Resins Turkey & Northwest Africa at BASF.
