Bodo Möller Chemie opens UK branch Coating products for England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland
With the opening of Bodo Möller Chemie UK Ltd., the German speciality chemicals company now has its own subsidiary in the UK. Bodo Möller Chemie Group (www.bm-chemie.com) has chosen Manchester as the headquarters of its UK subsidiary, which will initially sell coating products in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Further products will be added to the portfolio in future. “The United Kingdom is one of the largest economies in Europe and is therefore an attractive market for us. The coating industry accounts for a large proportion of British exports to Europe and the rest of the world,” explains Juergen Rietschle, Managing Director of Bodo Möller Chemie.
The UK subsidiary will be managed by graduate polymer chemist Thomas McCarthy. “I am delighted to have the opportunity to represent Bodo Möller Chemie here in Britain and abroad. It is an exciting role as part of a global team, which has already made a name for itself for expert and solution-focused distribution,” says new Managing Director of Bodo Möller Chemie UK, McCarthy.
For the company headquartered in Offenbach am Main, this represents a further step in its global expansion strategy. As it has done in Asia and America, this will now also strengthen its position in the European market. As a distributor with in-depth applications know-how, Bodo Möller Chemie offers a wide range of products and solutions in the areas of coatings and dyes, adhesives and sealants plus other specialist applications.
