Bodo Möller Chemie chartered its course into the future in line with its Fit for Future 2030 slogan at its management meeting this year. Besides a review of the successful financial year 2022, the team determined its corporate strategy for the years to come. This strategy focuses on sustainability, digitisation, future technologies, global expansion and broadening adhesive expertise.
The leading special chemicals distributor and solutions provider has set itself ambitious goals for the future. For instance, it aims to triple its turnover of 193 million euros by 2030. In terms of strategic direction, the company is prioritising sustainability, digitisation and innovative future technologies, such as artificial intelligence, 5G communication, electric vehicles, autonomous driving, and renewable energies with a low carbon footprint, such as hydrogen. “For Bodo Möller Chemie, these are the main pillars for sustainable, future growth,” states Frank Haug, Chairman of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group Executive Management. “The consistent focus on future technologies in particular is firmly anchored in our corporate strategy. That’s why we are continuously investing in building on our technical expertise and developing our centres of excellence for adhesives in Poland, China, India and the US further.” The company also plans to advance its global expansion significantly over the coming years.
Continuing on the road to success
The growth targets Bodo Möller Chemie has set itself are designed to sustain its success story of recent years: the special chemicals distributor has increased its turnover to 193 million euros, an improvement of 37% over the previous year. This means that it has doubled its turnover within just two years. It has also achieved growth in all regions worldwide and gained new branches, services and cooperation partners. For instance, Bodo Möller Chemie acquired Portuguese Henkel Bonderite specialists Anmapi and founded its subsidiary Bodo Möller Chemie Portugal as a consequence of the takeover. On purchasing the Spanish distributor General Adhesivos, the adhesive systems experts gained access to Medmix mixers and an additional adhesive laboratory to perform mechanical tests on plastics. This perfectly complements existing chemical testing for plastics in the laboratory in Poland. Moreover, Bodo Möller Chemie is now the official advanced training partner for adhesive technology for the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials, offering a comprehensive advanced training programme to qualify as an adhesive bonder (EAB) and adhesive specialist (EAS).
