IMCD Expands Biocide Offerings with DuPont Industrial Biosciences in Europe and South Africa

Rotterdam, The Netherlands - Mar. 15, 2019
IMCD and DuPont Industrial Biosciences are pleased to announce an expansion of their distribution partnership in Europe for biocides used in industrial preservation and homecare applications, including ROCIMA™, BIOBAN™ and KATHON™.
This expansion furthers partnership on sales, marketing and distribution of biocides that started 35-years ago between IMCD (then AWL) and DuPont (previously ACIMA), and strengthens both IMCD’s extensive portfolio as well as DuPont Industrial Biosciences’ route to market.
Dow and DuPont are bringing together their complementary portfolios. Dow Microbial Control is now aligned under DuPont Industrial Biosciences, a business unit of Specialty Products. IMCD will distribute the company’s biocides in Europe and South Africa across the coatings, construction, homecare and industrial and institutional cleaning markets. IMCD will add value to the distribution with regulatory support and microbiological laboratory support, provided by BioPreserv in Grasse, France.
"We are pleased to announce the extension of our global partnership with IMCD, which now includes the European biocides market,” said Jeroen Ingelbrecht, Sales Director EMEA at DuPont Industrial Biosciences. “IMCD's experience and deep knowledge positions them well to provide personalized support to our customers on the ground. The fact that IMCD provides formulatory, regulatory and technical expertise – including microbial challenge-tests and regular updates on topics like BPR, CLP, MIT-free and more – sets them apart in the industry and makes IMCD our partner of choice."
Frank Schneider, Business Group Director, IMCD Coatings & Construction and member of the Executive Committee, commented: "DuPont Industrial Biosciences is an industry pioneer and innovator that works with customers across a range of markets to improve the performance, productivity, and sustainability of their products and processes. We are delighted that IMCD’s solid sales performance in 11 European countries means we can now expand with DuPont's prestigious range of biocides into all of Europe and South Africa.”
