Azelis expands Home Care & Industrial Cleaning presence in the Philippines through a new distribution agreement with Novozymes

12 December 2022

Azelis, a leading innovation service provider in the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry, is pleased to announce the expansion of its partnership with Novozymes, a leader in biological solutions, to the Philippines. Azelis entered the Philippines in 2021 through the majority shareholding acquisition of Phil-Asiatic Supply & Services, Inc. (“PSSI”), strengthening its presence in Asia Pacific. This distribution agreement is a reflection of the group’s increasing business activities in the Home Care & Industrial Cleaning (“HC&IC”) market, and its commitment to grow with both principals and joint venture companies.

Effective immediately, PSSI, an Azelis company, will distribute Novozymes’ enzymes for cleaning solutions. Uniquely dedicated to enzymes, Novozymes creates effective biological solutions that improve industrial performance while preserving the planet’s resources. Their enzymes make everyday products more sustainable by reducing the use of chemicals in detergent formulations, which decreases carbon emissions and minimizes chemical stress on bodies of water. By combining Azelis’ global market presence, PSSI’s experienced team of technical and sales experts, and Novozymes’ innovative portfolio of products, customers have access to a wider range of greener, more efficient cleaning solutions for clothes, dishes and surfaces.

According to Novozymes, partnering with Azelis and PSSI will allow the company to provide customers with formulations that are more innovative, sustainable and aligned with leading market trends. Besides having a shared focus on sustainability, the strategic partnership will also allow Novozymes to accelerate their growth by capitalizing on Azelis and PSSI’s ability to create tailored solutions, provide dedicated laboratory facilities and drive strong commercial opportunities.  

Jaciel Orandain, General Manager PSSI, comments:

“This mandate is excellent acknowledgment of Novozymes’ trust in collaborating with us to expand their business footprint, thanks to our extensive knowledge of the HC&IC market. The addition of Novozymes’ enzymes to our lateral value chain expands our offering and the first-class solutions we provide. We are delighted to distribute their enzyme products in the Philippines, which nicely complements our existing portfolio and provides us with a broader range of cleaning solutions and new opportunities in the market.”
