Wacker’s Silicones Business Wins Accolades from Unilever

September 4, 2013

Unilever presented Wacker with this year’s Partner to Win Award for its customer-oriented supply of silicone raw materials. According to Unilever, Wacker helped to significantly reduce the cost for silicone emulsions for hair care products by expanding capacities and developing effective and affordable solutions at its site in India. The award ceremony took place during a supplier summit staged by Unilever in Singapore.

“We are thrilled to award Wacker the Partner to Win Award in the category ‘Joint Value Creation’ for their commitment to working with Unilever to grow our businesses sustainably together,” said Unilever’s chief supply chain officer, Pier Luigi Sigismondi.

Wacker has been supplying silicone emulsions, primarily from its production facility in Kolkata, India, to Unilever in Southeast Asia for about 10 years. “Unilever was expanding their business in India and in Southeast Asia and was looking for a supplier supporting this growth by providing high-quality products and sufficient capacities to meet their demand,” said Jörg Krey, head of the performance silicones business unit. 

In the meantime, Wacker has become one of the company’s most important raw material suppliers.
