Nordmann at the K-2019: “Knowledge in action”

Hamburg, September 10, 2019: Internationally operating chemicals distributor Nordmann will be exhibiting at the upcoming K fair in Düsseldorf together with several of its partners: FRANCESCO FRANCESCHETTI ELASTOMERI (FFE), Honeywell, Kraton, Nyacol and PMC. The K is the world’s number-one trade show for the plastics industry.

For Nordmann, this year’s fair will mean focusing on raw materials that meet the market’s high demand for sustainability in plastics. “At Nordmann, we believe in the sensible and sustainable use of plastic products. For us, it’s important to remember that plastics are more than just raw materials; they are recyclable materials,” says Jost E. Laumeyer, Global Sales Director Plastics at Nordmann.

Appearing at the Düsseldorf trade fair with some of its key partners underscores Nordmann’s aim to continue making its technical and commercial expertise internationally visible. Nordmann sees great potential for growth in continuing to develop as a solutions provider, taking an active role in supporting the complex projects of its business partners and getting their products established successfully on the market. “This calls for trust and close partnerships, and at Nordmann we are continuously investing in both,” remarks Laumeyer.

As a leading international distributor, Nordmann lives out its brand values of “Visible”, “International” and “Partnership” through close cooperation with its suppliers and customers. As a result, the company has an extensive international network and a wide-ranging product portfolio, which has recently been expanded:

  • The technical and application expertise Nordmann’s team demonstrated in Europe convinced Chinese partner Hangzhou JLS Flame Retardants Chemical to entrust Nordmann with the distribution of its products in the USA.
  • Kolon Plastics, INC., one of the world’s leading suppliers of engineering plastics and other high-end materials from Korea, has named Nordmann as its official sales partner for KOPEL® Thermoplastic Copolyester Elastomers (TPE-C) in Europe, excluding the Nordic countries and Turkey.
  • Since August 1, 2019, Nordmann has been the sole distributor of Venator’s titanium dioxide and functional additives in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
  • As of January 1, 2020, Nordmann will begin distributing specialty wax additives from Völpker Spezialprodukte GmbH (VOELPKER) in Europe. VOELPKER is one of the most established European wax producers.

Examples such as these speak for the Nordmann strategy of growing together with its partners and at the same time being open to the further diversification its portfolio.

The K fair, taking place in Düsseldorf this year from October 16-23, is the world’s most important event for the plastics and rubber industry. For Nordmann, the fair provides an ideal platform upon which to introduce its team and its partners as solutions providers in chemical distribution to a large and international audience.
