At IMCD, we’ve always been curious,
passionate, and ambitious.
Right from the early days, we have applied our entrepreneurial mindset to every opportunity that we uncover through working with our suppliers and customers.
This, in turn, has fuelled our drive to adopt a true partnership model. Not satisfied with being the ‘middleman’, we set out to evolve and became one of the first distributors of speciality chemicals and ingredients to share information transparently,
delivering sales data and market intelligence through a single point of contact. Through taking expertise in-house, we’ve grown to provide our customers with the technical know-how they need to turn market trends into products that make a real difference.
With 11 acquisitions, IMCD successfully expanded its global network and product portfolio in all its regions.
Furthermore, IMCD launched a new business group, Industrial Solutions, offering customers dedicated application experts in four key areas: chemical intermediaries, environmental technologies, material technologies and processing technologies.
Increasing its sustainability efforts, IMCD joined Together for Sustainability, a member-driven initiative that aims to raise CSR standards throughout the chemical industry. Additionally, IMCD was included as one of 25 companies in the Dutch ESG AEX, demonstrating best Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices.
In the APAC region, we accelerated our growth in the personal care market and improved our portfolio in life sciences, home care, water treatment and waterborne coatings solutions. Through acquisitions in the Americas region, we strengthened our industrial market presence in Central America, Peru, the Caribbean, and Colombia. In EMEA, we bolster our presence to better serve customers and partners throughout Southeast Europe (SEE).
IMCD celebrates 25 years of innovation and value creation.
IMCD moves into the Dutch blue chip AEX index.
