Krahn is an experienced European distribution company who recognises that success demands more than the standard solution. At Krahn, we make the difference by offering our principals a range of services and expertise that sets us apart from other distributors.

To say ‘we know the customers and the customers know us’ is a bold statement, but it is true. We have a wealth of experience of developing the market, maintaining the market, and expanding the market – to the benefit of our customers as well as our supplying partners.

Krahn´s organisation reflects a clear market orientation. The key for our in-depth product and application know-how, as well as our high market penetration, is an experienced industry team combining product management, technical service and sales. Our core customer segments are coatings, adhesive & sealants, construction chemicals, plastic and rubber processing, technical ceramics, photovoltaic, as well as lubricants & greases.

Krahn enjoys the confidence of many leading international producers and smaller, more specialist suppliers – altogether providing a complimentary product portfolio with synergistic effects. The basis of our partnership with our principals is transparency, trust and a shared growth strategy. We provide our supplying partners with detailed information on market developments, future trends, and the requirements for innovative products. The products distributed by us are sold and promoted under the principals’ name and brands.

As a principal, you will also profit from a sophisticated logistic system including local warehousing, dangerous good management, bulk storage, packaging and blending capacities as well as sample handling.
