With this investment we are excellently positioned to continue to be a reliable and sustainable development partner to our global customer base”, says Dr. Jörg Hinnerwisch, BYK Division President.
“Everything that we have learned about producing wax dispersions in the last 50 years has been transferred to the project and construction team. The new facility ensures that we continue to provide a safe and ergonomic working place for our employees, to remain a reliable and sustainable supplier for our customers and a good and compliant neighbour”, says Steef Bouwmeester, managing director of BYK Netherlands B.V.
