IMCD Group Announces New Business Group Industrial Solutions

Today, IMCD, a global leader in the distribution of speciality chemicals and ingredients, announces the formation of a new business group, Industrial Solutions.

Our experts have the specialized expertise to problem-solve and provide a solution.

Industrial Solutions is focused on four key areas: chemical intermediaries, environmental technologies, material technologies and processing technologies. In each area of focus, IMCD has specialised experts dedicated to monitoring how global industrial and chemical trends are impacting the solutions their customers need.  

Establishing Industrial Solutions comes as a response to key global trends, such as a rise in demand for products in applications like high-temperature, electronics, and batteries, as well as the prioritisation of sustainability in the industry, with recycling and water treatment solutions top of mind for IMCD. Moving forward, IMCD will align their acquisitions with these market drivers to strategically grow the business in these areas of focus.

“This change brings great opportunity for IMCD to elevate our principal partners, offer a broader product selection to our customers and grow our business globally,” said Piet van der Slikke, CEO of IMCD.

With the new business group in place, Industrial Solutions can build value through focused expertise, offering dedicated application experts to customers. Additionally, IMCD can prioritise cross selling opportunities, supporting growth of both IMCD and our principal partners. 

“With a clear focus in our industrial offering, we can bring industry-leading speciality solutions to every customer,” said Industrial Solutions Business Group Director Dr. Fikri Alemdaroglu. “We are proud to offer a dedicated team of experts, global network and broad portfolio and know that together, we can create opportunities that go beyond the possible for our businesses.,” Dr. Alemdaroglu concluded.

Industrial Solutions will absorb the previously known business group Synthesis, as well as areas of the other industries IMCD serves. To learn more about Industrial Solutions, click here.
