German speciality chemicals distributor Nordmann has opened a Benelux subsidiary based in the Netherlands.
Nordmann Benelux, located in Capelle aan den Ijssel near Rotterdam, is headed by Jost E. Laumeyer.
“The foundation of our own subsidiary gives us even better access to this important market in Europe, where we see great potential for the future," said Nordmann managing director Gerd Bergmann.
"This provides our suppliers with expanded sales opportunities and our customers with local service and advice throughout the BeNeLux region. I am very happy, that we have won Jost E. Laumeyer, who has many years of expertise in distribution and a high level of intercultural competence, as managing director,” he added.
Laumeyer, who has been global sales director for plastics at Nordmann since 2018, said: "Our goal is to intensify the already existing business relationships, but also to develop new partnerships.
“This investment underlines our Nordmann approach of "Global presence, local best". I am looking forward to representing Nordmann in the Benelux region together with my team and to distribute products from well-known manufacturers here, as well as to developing new product lines."
