Further strengthening businesses related to water treatment chemicals
We develop the water treatment chemicals business over a wide area that covers not only the Middle East and Africa, but also Europe. We have established business sites in eight countries, with Kurita Europe GmbH based in Germany playing a central role. We provide customers in mainstay petrochemical complexes, oil refining plants, and the pulp and paper industry with oil process treatment chemicals and paper process treatment chemicals , backed by our high product development capabilities that help improve productivity and yield. We also focus on solving issues and reducing the total costs of customers, making use of the extensive range of our product lineup that includes core products such as cooling water treatment and boiler water treatment chemicals.
In 2015, we acquired the water solution, paper solution, and aluminum compounds businesses of German-based BK Giulini GmbH and its affiliates to further reinforce our business base in Europe. We are strengthening the merchandising power of our products and enhancing the comprehensive solutions we offer customers by adding manufacturing bases in Germany and Turkey and an R&D facility in Germany.
