As of the start of this month, the Eastern European division of Nordmann, Rassmann Group will exclusively distribute DSM’s full personal care product portfolio in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia.
The two companies have been collaborating with one another in Germany since 2013 and The Netherlands since 2014, focused solely on the cosmetics industry.
DSM Personal Care says that ties have strengthened recently due to the Polish market being added to its distribution portfolio in July 2014, and that the new deal with Nordmann, Rassmann Eastern Europe division will further intensify its global partnership.
“We are proud to be associated with DSM for the Eastern Europe Countries regions. DSM is a key supplier for the NRC Group and we continue to expand our very good partnership,” says Irina Zschaler, General Manager of the Business Unit Central Eastern European Region, Nordmann, Rassmann GmbH.
“This extension will enable us to fulfil our ultimate objective of becoming a one-stop ingredients and solutions provider in our local market. We are excited to partner with DSM as we focus our combined energies serving a broader range of customers with industry-leading ingredients and solutions in the personal care market.”
Nordmann, Rassmann Group specializes in the distribution of specialty chemicals and has an extensive network of offices throughout Eastern Europe, particularly in the cosmetics industry.
