Safechem is a leading solutions provider for industrial parts cleaning and the dry cleaning industry. The company enables customers to benefit from the best cleaning solution by managing the product specific risks of solvents. Univar will now lead the management of the Safe-Tainer system refilling and the waste management business in Southern Europe from its upgraded facilities in Cusago, near Milan, Italy. Univar’s investment in Cusago not only increases the plant’s cutting-edge safety and operational capabilities, but also sees the addition of a new stock area, filling station, tanks and a technological safety system for emission control.

As part of its agreement with Safechem, Univar manages the delivery, handling and withdrawal of chlorinated solvents and promotes the renowned Safe-Tainer system from Safechem to eliminate any risks that might be associated with the transfer and storage of material.

We are confident that Univar’s established logistical network and support capabilities will add real value for our customers,” says Karl Stuetzle, General Manager of Safechem.
