About us

IMCD is a global leader in the sales, marketing and distribution of speciality chemicals and ingredients. 2020 marks an important anniversary for our company, as we celebrate 25 years of working with the best suppliers in the industry providing our customers with top products and adding value through our technical expertise, formulation support and market knowledge. 
Celebrating 25 years 
IMCD’s adventure began in 1995; a small group of companies arriving as the ‘new kid on the block’ in the speciality chemicals industry. Our ambition? To be a trends-focused innovator and industry benchmark. Driven by entrepreneurial spirit and guided by financial discipline and consistent strategy, IMCD grew its geographical reach, first in Europe and then globally. This, along with our continued investment in formulation expertise, digital infrastructure and 

technical centres, has enabled us to bring technical expertise and local knowledge to partners worldwide.

As we celebrate 25 years, we celebrate the passion and tenacity of our people. The value creators who collaborate with IMCD’s broad network of suppliers and customers in markets and territories across the globe to co-create unique, tailored ingredients and solutions that meet evolving needs.  

Now, 25 years since its foundation, IMCD is a global leader in ingredient formulation and distribution, creating value-driven opportunities for its partners every day. 

One Company. Endless Possibilities.

From the food we eat and the medicines we take, to the cell phone we couldn’t live without, our products can be found all around us. Across our eight Business Groups, we grow our suppliers’ businesses by using our high-quality portfolio to create relevant, future-proof formulations.
