• SWITZERLAND: DKSH Business Unit Performance Materials has signed partnerships with several companies.
Among the moves, Clariant and DKSH recently decided to expand their existing collaboration in Asia and join forces in the US, where DKSH provides market expansion services for Clariant’s Business Unit Industrial & Consumer Specialties, which includes preservatives, surfactants, rheology modifiers and polymers. These products are used in a broad range of skin and hair care products and will be distributed by DKSH throughout the Midwestern US.
In addition, DKSH and Bluestar Silicones, a global silicones producer with more than 50 years of expertise and a comprehensive portfolio, have entered into a North American alliance that includes distribution to selected key accounts and regional distribution arrangements.
Also, IBR, a producer of proprietary, natural active ingredients for cosmetics, food and pharmaceutical products, extended an existing relationship and DKSH was appointed to distribute its specialty patent-protected technological actives to a selected key account in the US market.
With the enlargement of its product portfolio in North America, DKSH is now in an even stronger position to cater to the specific needs of the R&D departments of the US personal care industry.
