In March 2015 Biesterfeld Spezialchemie GmbH started its activities in Brazil. In cooperation with the co-subsidiary Biesterfeld do Brasil, the company has commenced the distribution of specialty chemicals in Brazil and has thus moved another step forward in opening up new markets.

“We are happy about extending our activities to the Brazilian market. With our experience in the field of distribution of specialty chemicals and our competence in application technology, we are looking forward to the new challenge. Currently we are developing our portfolio that contains specialty surfactants, carboxylic acids and other products from organic synthesis. Besides, we are pleased to have signed a cooperation for the Brazilian market with Cosphatec, a company producing raw materials for the cosmetics industry”, explains Inge Gotthardt, Business Manager LifeScience of Biesterfeld Spezialchemie GmbH. Ms. Andreia Morelli is the sales manager in-charge in São Paulo. She is a qualified food technologist and has years of experience in the LifeScience industry.
