Tianjin - May 7, 2015

Operating from Tianjin, in particular the region of Tianjin and the province of Hebei are serviced, which are considered to be the centres of the chemical industry. The focus of marketing is primarily on tensides such as ethanolamines (MEA, DEA). This product group is indispensable for the production of detergents and washing powder.

To Michael Kuhlmann, Head of the business unit HELM International, the opening of the sales office represents a key step towards reinforcing the Company’s distribution business: “HELM has been represented in China with representative offices of its own since 1984. However, our sales office in Tianjin will now enable us to maintain our contacts with our business associates directly on site and to respond individually to their particular requirements. Our long-term objective is to manage our business operations throughout the Chinese market.”

Asia is of strategic importance to HELM AG. Additional locations are planned.
