Merck and Archimica start distribution partnership


Merck Schuchardt OHG, a subsidiary of Merck KGaA, and Archimica Group Holdings B.V. are entering into a close cooperation to provide building blocks and special reagents for Organic Synthesis via an exclusive distribution agreement.

"The combination of Merck's and Archimica's strengths offers a lot of added value for customers," as Dr. Walther Johannssen, Senior Director of Performance Products, points out. "Merck's well-known documentation and regulatory support together with customized specifications and packaging for high quality products from Archimica, a recognized world leader in fine chemicals, are a unique package for a broad variety of applications."

Dr. Andreas Meudt, Managing Director Marketing, Sales and R&D of Archimica, comments that "Merck's global network of technical experts and marketing and sales specialists will provide dedicated support for customers world-wide which have not been covered so far and will make our products available to a much broader customer base."

The range of Archimica products will further enhance Merck's portfolio of special chemicals for Organic Synthesis. Beside providing building blocks and special reagents for the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients, applications in regulated markets like cosmetics and food as well as a variety of fine chemical applications are focus areas for Merck. Based on the proven track record in supplying products from grams to tons, Merck is the ideal partner to work with from the very beginning of a new project up to production scale.
