MULHEIM AN DER RUHR, GERMANY/HOUSTON, TEXAS: Brenntag, the global market leader in chemical distribution, has acquired ALTIVIA Corporation, a water treatment chemical distributor headquartered in Houston, Texas. ALTIVIA Chemicals LLC’s aluminum polymers manufacturing business and the ferric and ferrous sulfate production facilities in Pasadena, Texas are not part of this transaction which was closed on 31 December 2012.

“Altivia has a leading market position in one of the largest industrial distribution markets in the United States. The acquisition will considerably strengthen our regional organization in the Southwest as well as our water additives business, which is one of our focus industries globally. Its strategically located facility in Houston with river barge and rail capabilities will allow for efficiency gains and further expansion of our business,” said William Fidler, Member of the Management Board, Brenntag AG.
