"We definitely have aligned business philosophy, centered around technical service and focus our efforts on specialty chemicals and ingredients."

Azelis Americas will continue to operate in the USA and Canada using its existing business business model and strategy.

“We are delighted to be part of Azelis. As our teams have gotten to know each other over the last weeks, it has been clear that we have similar cultures. We definitely have aligned business philosophy, centered around technical service and focus our efforts on specialty chemicals and ingredients. We share a common goal: to better serve our customers and principals at a global, regional and local level. Since the deal was announced, we learned that many of our principals have indicated they are interested in growing with us. A key attribute is our ability to access the smaller customer base via skilled sales teams with in-depth technical knowledge and market expertise," said Frank Bergonzi.
