Bodo Möller Chemie takes over the Araldite® – trading business of Astorit AG
Bodo Möller Chemie Switzerland AG is taking over the entire trading operations with products of Huntsman Advanced Materials for the area electro casting, for composite applications and adhesives, like, the brands Araldite®, Aradur®, Agomet® and Arathane® from Huntsman Advanced Materials.
As a result, Bodo Möller Chemie AG Switzerland assumes also the existing trading business of Astorit AG with Araldite®-products supplied by Huntsman Advanced Materials, headquartered in Einsiedeln.
The Swiss subsidiary of the internationally active Bodo Möller Chemie Group (www.bm -chemie.de), headquartered in Offenbach am Main in Germany, is already longtime active in the adhesives and specialty chemicals market and familiar with the distribution of Araldite® products. By starting in Germany for more than twenty years ago the Bodo Möller Chemie Group has established itself as a distributor for the Araldit ® products.
„This business takeover enables the Bodo Möller Chemie Switzerland AG to expand its position in the Swiss adhesive distribution and to strengthen its leadership role in the sale and distribution of Huntsman products,” said Andreas Baettig and Jürgen Ihrybauer, managing directors of the Swiss branch based in Winterthur. Only at the beginning of the year, Huntsman Advanced Materials and Bodo Möller Chemie Group had deepened their more than thirty year partnership in Europe and South Africa. In addition to the adhesive sector, the Bodo Möller Chemie Group is established as a long-time distributor of Huntsman Advanced Materials for other areas of the Formulated Systems segment, including high-quality products for composites and tooling as well as resins and casting systems for electronic applications.
Bodo Möller Chemie operates with regional and market-specific product ranges worldwide in eleven offices as the link between manufacturers of specialty chemicals and the processing industry. A central logistics center in Offenbach am Main supports offices throughout the world – including South Africa, Denmark and the DACH countries – to always provide customers in the sales areas on site as a regional distributor of Huntsman Advanced Materials with tailored and customized solutions.
