“Acquiring Melrob not only represents the wide-reaching and strategic expansion of Nordmann, Rassmann's current activities in Europe, but also a decisive step towards growing our business in both the Asia-Pacific region and North America,” explains Managing Director Dr. Gerd Bergmann.
Japan has a special position in Nordmann, Rassmann's newly expanded geographic presence, as the company has had very successful partnerships with well-known suppliers there for decades. “We are especially excited to be acquiring our own subsidiary in the Japanese market and thereby be able to take advantage of new business contacts and opportunities,” Dr. Bergmann added. “On the one hand, this acquisition is the result of our continued pursuit of Nordmann, Rassmann's growth strategy. On the other, and through our now complete European and global presence – which gives the whole NRC Group a markedly higher level of visibility on the international market – we're reaching yet another one of our strategic goals.”
Through the takeover, Nordmann, Rassmann will be acquiring new and important points of access to the markets for industrial chemicals as well as monomers. The Hamburg-based distributor will also be gaining another unique selling point due to Melrob's work in the biomaterials sector.
