About IMCD Group - Specialty Chemicals and Ingredients

Our story can be traced back to a small group of companies that came together in 1995 with a vision for the industry. Today, guided by the entrepreneurial spirit of our founders, we operate in more than 50 countries across six continents and proudly employ over 3,700 professionals. In 2021, thanks to the passion and ambition of our team, we generated revenues of EUR 3,435 million.

Our aim is to help our suppliers simplify and grow their business operations through our extensive local networks, market intelligence and technical expertise.

Our customers benefit from direct access to a large portfolio of high-quality products, avoiding the complexity of dealing with multiple points of contact.

As a responsible distributor of speciality chemicals, our strategy for growth is underpinned by balancing the needs of our people, the environment, and the communities within which we operate.

We are rightfully proud of our team's diversity, which draws from a range of backgrounds and nationalities, and enables us to benefit from fresh perspectives and ways of problem-solving.
