Azelis has created a full service operation, Azelis Adriatic, to serve markets in Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Kosovo.
Based in Zagreb, this new legal entity is part of the Azelis Mediterranean East region under the leadership of Regional Managing Director, Ebru Telli.
“These markets were previously served on an agency basis but now, with the establishment of full distribution services, Azelis is significantly enhancing its ability to penetrate this important geographic market”, she said.
“We already have quite a strong presence in Chemicals, Coatings and Rubber in these countries and we will further strengthen these business units. We also now have the opportunity to serve additional industry sectors and plan to increase our sales team. We will particularly focus on establishing and growing business in Composites, MPA (Materials Plastics Additives), Personal Care and Food & Health industries.” said Michel Dubois Group Director Strategy & Marketing.
Hanco van den Akker, Group Director Business Operations, added: “Customers will benefit from a wider product offering backed by technical support and local integrated distribution services. As Azelis Adriatic, we are now offering a much enhanced quality service and our aim is to add real value for our customers and principals to ensure Azelis becomes the preferred specialty chemicals distributor in these countries.”
