MULHEIM AN DER RUHR, GERMANY: Brenntag has completed acquisition of G S Robins & Company, a leading regional distributor of industrial chemicals headquartered in St Louis, Missouri. The acquisition enables Brenntag to improve its presence in several of Brenntag’s focus industries including the food & beverage and water treatment industries. Brenntag will integrate G S Robins & Company into its North American operations within the next six months.

 

“Brenntag and G S Robins & Company share a similar geographical distribution area with both companies bringing complementary products, services and industry knowledge to the many customers in that region. By bundling the experience and market penetration of two successful companies the acquisition provides a firm foundation for continued growth and expanded service capabilities in an important and growing market for Brenntag,” said William Fidler, Member of Management Board, Brenntag AG.

 

G S Robins & Company, a family operated business, is primarily a distributor of industrial chemicals with custom blending services and specialty packaging in eight facilities. In 2010 the company generated sales of $ 96 million.
