Brenntag, the leading chemical distribution company, has inked a deal with titanium dioxide specialist KRONOS to sell its pigments for colouring pharmaceutical and cosmetics products in Europe.
The titanium dioxide pigments are said to provide whiteness, brightness and opacity, and include KRONOS 1171, an anastase pigment suitable for colouring food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and tobacco products; and KRONOS 2971, a rutile pigment used to colour food and cosmetic products.
Jean-Pierre Gravel, President of KRONOS Europe, said: “We are very excited to enter in this new partnership with Brenntag for the distribution of our food, pharma and cosmetics line.
“We are confident that this collaboration will help us grow the business through increased market exposure and provide improved service to customers on technical, regulatory and commercial aspects.”
Uwe Schültke, COO of Brenntag EMEA, added: “This is a great addition to our existing product portfolio and it further deepens and strengthens our global business relationship with KRONOS.
“Our excellent market expertise, long term experience and great customer proximity will ease the sales and marketing of KRONOS products.”
The agreement is effective from January 2018, and Brenntag will be the exclusive distributor of KRONOS pigments in the Western Europe region.
