The sector stands for more than 30,000 highly qualified jobs directly and four times as many indirectly. The vast majority of distributors in Europe are small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), many of which are family-owned with long-standing close ties to the regions there are operating in. Furthermore, the European chemical distribution sector creates more than €28 bn turnover each year by adding value in the chemical supply chain and beyond, while meeting the demand and specific needs of over 1 million downstream users of very diverse sectors such as pharmaceuticals, construction, paints & coatings, agriculture, cosmetics, food & feed, automotive. Distributors are in midst of all value chains. Also the services rendered by distributors can vary greatly and can comprise functions like logistics & packaging, formulation, recycling, research & development, innovation, training, regulatory and technical advice, and warehousing.
