ICIS publishes ‘Forbes list’ of chemical distributors

*ICIS, the world’s largest and most authoritative petrochemical market information provider, recently published its latest list of the Top 100 largest chemical distributors.

The German concern Brenntag (400 locations in 68 countries) still stands proudly at the top of the list, with sales of 8.7 billion euros in 2011.
Alpha Wax also gets a name check, ‘bubbling under’ worldwide at number 107, thanks to sales of almost 61 million euros in 2011.

Alpha Wax CEO Dick Haan: “Not bad for our relatively young company. It’s very gratifying to see our name listed among all these petrochemical giants.
However, with our specific expertise in waxes and wax distribution we are and will always be a specialist. In this respect I think we are already among the absolute top players worldwide.”
