The firm will be integrated into DKSH’s performance materials business unit. Through this transaction, DKSH gains access to attractive new clients and several hundred customers in Switzerland, Germany and Austria.

In other news, DKSH reported increasing demand from customers for its Supplier Agreement Program (SAPA), a service designed to ensure that suppliers understand the needs of customers and that they are able to deliver on these requirements.

Primary criteria are ensuring quality, product purity and worldwide on-spec delivery, according to the company. The new certification label “Qualified by DKSH” assures that a supplier also has access to the right technology, equipment, machinery and personnel, that it behaves ethically and is financially sound, noted the company.
