Biesterfeld and DuPont expand their distribution partnership for textile enzymes
Biesterfeld Spezialchemie is expanding its partnership with the American company DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences and is now responsible, with immediate effect, for the extensive textile enzymes portfolio throughout Europe, Russia, Turkey, and North Africa.
Since 2016, the distributor has been distributing DuPont’s “Genencare Osms” portfolio, a natural moisturiser used in the cosmetics industry, in selected European countries. The distributor has now been granted extended distribution rights to include textile enzyme. The products are marketed under the brand names of “Optisize”, “Primafast”, Prima Green” and “Indi Age” and are used predominantly in the textile and leather sectors.
New addition to cleaning portfolio
“The enzyme product range is a new addition to the Biesterfeld cleaning portfolio. This is good news for our customers, who will benefit not only from proven, reliable products, but also from sustainable processing techniques and more efficient production operations – increasingly important considerations in this sector,” commented Sergej But, Market Manager Cleaning at Biesterfeld Spezialchemie. “Enzymes act as catalysts and accelerate processes, allowing shorter washing cycles at cooler temperatures. Some products require fewer surfactants which reduces the environmental impact.”
“We enjoy an exceptionally successful partnership with Biesterfeld in different market segments. The expansion of our cooperation to encompass textile applications marks another step towards a shared future. We are convinced that in Biesterfeld, we have found the right distributor for our portfolio,” added Mike Mossel, EMEA DuPont N&B Home & Personal Care Sales Leader.
