Bodo Möller Chemie expands to Middle East Specialty chemicals expert supplies the Arabian Peninsula with Huntsman adhesive products
The Bodo Möller Chemie Group is setting a new adhesive point on its expansion map. With a branch office in Dubai, the specialty chemicals company will be supplying the Arabian Peninsula with immediate effect. The adhesive products of Huntsman Advance Materials are being distributed in the countries of Kuwait, Oman, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates by an own sales organisation with a warehouse on site. The up-and-coming economy in the Arab countries offers the best foundation for successfully selling the adhesive products: “In the Emirates and the surrounding countries, we are finding extraordinary growth, from yacht construction right through to enormous architecture. State-of-the-art bonding technologies are in focus here, in order to work more efficiently”, says Frank Haug, Managing Director of Bodo Möller Chemie GmbH, based in Offenbach am Main (Germany).
Basem Siaj takes over management
In Dubai, Basem Siaj is taking over the management of the new branch. Siaj is very familiar with both the German and Arab culture and has many years of experience in the development of Germany-Arab business relationships. “For good intercultural cooperation, it is crucial to have a sense of country-specific business practices. The aim is for Bodo Möller Chemie to be sustainably established as a competent partner on the Arab market”, explains Siaj. His experiences result from business studies in Germany and working for a German company in Dubai. As Chief Operating Officer, he has already demonstrated his skills in setting up and managing a newly founded branch office there. “We have full trust in the Managing Director of the Dubai branch and are very much looking forward to the joint market development”, adds Haug.
Longstanding Huntsman partnership expanded further
