HANSA GROUP AG:
New marketing structures in Italy
HANSA GROUP AG (Duisburg) and its subsidiary, Wibarco GmbH (Ibbenbüren) have reorganized the structures for marketing and sales of their surfactants portfolio in Italy. In the context of continuous optimization of its European marketing and sales network, HANSA GROUP AG has entrusted surfactant distribution to Eurosyn S.p.A.. Eurosyn founder, Flavio Campana, and HANSA board member Thomas Pfisterer (Marketing and Sales) recently put their signatures to the corresponding agreement at the German company's Duisburg headquarters.
Since its founding in 1983, Eurosyn S.p.A. has, under its motto of "Chemicals in motion", marketed surfactants and specialty chemicals to industrial customers in Italy. The anionic surfactants supplied by Hansa Group AG round off Eurosyn's extensive portfolio and close a strategic gap in its range. Its own tank farm and warehouses near Milan will enable Eurosyn to assure optimum supply of these products, including those of Hansa Group AG, to Italian users.

With its around two hundred employees at its Duisburg, Düren, Ibbenbüren and Münster locations, the company achieved turnover of some 268 million euro in chemicals in 2008. In addition to Chemische Fabrik Wibarco, based in Ibbenbüren, Westphalia, the group also includes Waschmittelwerk Genthin GmbH, founded in Saxony-Anhalt in April, 2009. Following acquisition of parts of the former Henkel facility in Genthin, and the keeping on of a portion of the former Henkel employees, the group's total workforce increased in 2009 to around 330.
