DKSH will provide business development, marketing, sales, logistics, and distribution services for KRONOS’ range of titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigments for coatings and plastics applications in Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the Philippines.

“We are very pleased to build on our established collaboration in Europe and expand into Asia Pacific where DKSH has been a leader in the distribution of industrial chemicals for a very long time,” says Alessandro Pedemonte, vice president, Sales MEAA, KRONOS. “We are confident that this extended partnership will deliver mutual and sustainable growth to both companies in all the four countries.”
