The chemical distribution industry has annual sales of around €168 billion globally, with about €28 billion in Europe. As a crucial link in the supply chain that connects manufacturers of chemicals with their customers in numerous application areas, distributors are an essential partner in the value creation process. The European Association of Chemical Distributors has picked the theme “Inspiring Innovation in a Global Economy” for its annual congress to take place in Istanbul from June 6 to 8, 2016. Dr. Michael Reubold asked Dr. Uta Jensen-Korte, director general, and Dr. Neville Prior, president of the FECC, about the role innovation plays in the chemical distribution industry, the key trends and the success factors for the future.
