Cover Story September/October 2016 BULKDISTRIBUTOR 13 on sector with Brenntag chemicals capabilities: many of our investments in the last 18 months and our planned investments leading in to 2020 and beyond will be supporting our strategy of being a real solution provider – by which I mean addressing whatever challenge our customers are faced with, be it cost structure, stocking, storing, getting the correct blend, or getting the technical support from our team when required. We are aiming to further increase our capacity to service customers in food, feed, pharma and cosmetics sectors. For instance we are currently working on the new life sciences hub warehousing facilities at a number of locations across the UK and Ireland. A new food application laboratory is being built at Brenntag Widnes food hub site, featuring formulation, product and stability testing and covering both flavour and ingredient development, once again with a view to offering added value rather than just being a product supplier. We are making significant investments in our warehousing and associated infrastructure to ensure compliance with even the most exacting of requirements, whether they be related to third party accreditations or commercial demands. We have used technology from the food processing and pharmaceutical sectors to adapt our warehouses, creating high quality, clean space within our existing network. A new GMP filling facility at Brenntag Scunthorpe currently under development will give us further access to the expanding pharma and cosmetics sector. It complements our existing GMP-accredited laboratory and dedicated filling systems for pharmaceutical customers in Germany and the cosmetics formulation and development laboratory in France. In the life sciences division, we continue to look at compliance and GMP guidelines, among other factors, when selecting logistic partners. In fact we apply a host of stringent performance criteria such as safety, security, financial stability, knowledge of the industry, range `WVVBvVw&26fW&vRfW&ƗGfFFVF( 2`v6&R'BbFR76W76VBbW FVF&fFW'2vRfBFB66P6&&FWBFvFR7Wǐ6FVVBG&fW2FR&W7B&7F6Rf G֖2&6FFG&W726vp&WBVVG2%sW"'W6W72F&fW26vRFP&WBv2F&w2W7W'&6W2( 0vWFW"FB2WfVBbf&6RWW&P"VWV7FVB6vRVv6FvR&FRW'6VfW2vƗG7&72&V2bW"'W6W72F6RvFFW6P6vW2B6FVRF&fFRv&@6727W7FW"6W'f6R7&72&V2f"7F6RFR&VwVF'Vf&V@26WB6&RFVFrF琦bW"7W7FW"B7WƖW'2FPVVFFbFR&6F&GV7G0&VwVF2vBWRvW&P'&VFr2&VV&RF&fFPf&FFFR&WB( 2&F2Vf7GW&W"BF7G&'WF"b&6F&GV7G2( 2BFV&fFRfVVF&6WFR7Wǒ6F2V7W&W2&GV6W'0&R6V7FVBFFV"VB&WG2@VFW'7FBFRW6W2bFV"&GV7G2RFW"WG&VB2Fv&G2F&B'G67&VFFF2fFb6WB67FǐVFW'Frf"f&7Wǖr6琦FffW&VBGW7G&W22vV2f7W6rࠧFR66g&7G'V7GW&RvR&V6v6PFR'F6RbV7W&rFBW &6VGW&W2&R&'W7BFRf'7B7F6PB&v&W6ǒFW7FVBBVFFVBvRfPv2&VVfW'&7FfRFW&2`f&fƖFFb6fWGBVƗG&6W2FW&ǒvRfRFWfVVB6&VV6fR7WƖW"&f77FVТ4$&WV&rFF'f@6W'Ff6FVFB&W'G2&GV7FFWF2B&GV7BFW7Frf"f@FFFfW2Bw&VFVG27WƖVBfFP'&VFrWGv&WW&RFFFF7V6vWfVbFW&67'WFvP&V6v6RFR&WV&VVG2BFP&VVfG2bF&B'GfW&f6F&VFpFW"g&7G'V7GW&RB6W'f6W2f 7F6R'FRVBb#bvRFVBF6WFRFR'&F6&WF66'FVТ%$26W'Ff6FBdT267&VFFF7&72Rb'&VFrTB&V@F7G&'WFB&VFr6FW2WFW&ǒdT267&VFFF2fV&VV6WfVBf"'&VFrT@&VB6FW2GW&rFR7BF2fvVB'6W'Ff6FFFR'&F6&WF66'FV%$2v&7FF&@f"7F&vRbF7G&'WFv66fW'0FR7F&vRF7G&'WFBvW6Ɩpb&VB6vVBfBw&FPw&VFVG2FFFfW2B&6W76rG2गB2W"FVBFfRbFR'&VFpTB&VB6FW2%$26W'FfVB'FPVBb#bFFFbFR6FW0fR&VV76W76VBf"U4B$C'&VFr2F&vWFrw&wF7&70WW&R'WFVFrFRƖfR66V6RFW&66V6RBvFW"G&VFV@'W6W76W2r2F2&Vr6WfVC$ƖfR66V6R27G&rw&wFGW7G'vR&RFVF6Fr6vf6@fW7FVG2FFV66B"dB7W'@FW"'W6W72'FW'2'VFrW &VG7G&r7V6ƗGWW'F6Rf 7F6RFR66WF72BfB@WG&F6V7F'2vRfRV6VB@&Rv&r6WfW&Wr&GV7G226V'FW"7W7FW'2&Vǐ'&VFrFFWfVFV2v6vRF7V66W76gVǒ'6&rW"vVFvPB66V6RvFFR7B7W'&VBG&VG0FR&WG6RvRfR&W76fP6&ƗFW2f&RFRTB&VBBW"7W7FW'26gW'FW"&VVfBg&Ф'&VF~( 2v&WGv&f"7F6RFRvBVf7GW&p&7F6Rt67&VFFVB&&F'@FVF6FVBfƖr77FV2f"&6WWF67W7FW'2vW&"WW&V66WF72f&VFBFWfVV@&&F'&6VBg&6Rv60W7V6ǒFVF6FVBFFRFWfVVB`fFfRf&VF2'&VF~( 2v&7G'V7GW&R'&w2FFFGfFvW2FW"7W7FW'2B7WƖW'2ƖR7V6&&F'Ɩ6Ff6ƗFW07&VFR&V'GVGf"6&&F&WGvVV'&VFrBVBW6W'2Ff&VFRWr&GV7G2BfFRFW&2bW7FrW2f"FR&VVfB`'FW2B6V֖6GW7G'fW&vFF2֖BvR&Rv&rf&W2&V7G27V62fBƖ6F&&F'vFW2FW&66V6P&&F'WGFW'v'FvFW"G&VFV@Ɩ6F&&F''&Ff&Cbv6WF֗6RW"f7W6VB&6FFR&WBBrvRFBfVPFFR7Wǒ6v7Bv&rvF7FVFW'2FRVVR6&FbFV666W26W&6v7F72FFVBfVP6W'f6RB7B'FFǒVPf7W6VBW6VV6RvG&fRW2ƖvBV'0VBbFR6WFFFW"f7F"2w&fF2BFP7&VF&ƗGbW"7WƖW"B7W7FW f6rFV3W"FVF6FVB6V7F"f7W02FVfFVǒ&VV6WfVBvpw&VFW"7W7FW"B7WƖW"F7VFFVǒVFrF'W6W72w&wF%sFRvFW"G&VFVBGW7G'2PbFRW&V2f"W"W&F2vW&PvRFBfVRFW"'W6W72'FW'26"ƶƒBGW7F6V֖62&V6vf6BB'FB'BbFP'W6W72FRTB&VB6P66W2FWvfR'&VFrVG'F6W'F&V2ƖRVffVVBG&VFVB'&VFr2&V6VFǒ66VFVBWW&VFVvF$4bf"f67V@ǖW'2V&ƖrG27V6Ɨ7G2Fv&vF$4n( 2FV6v7G2B&R6VV0FF6W'f6R&fFW"खFRTB&VBvRfRfW7FV@WFrW"FV66B6W&66&ƗFW2FRvFW"G&VFVB6V7F vFFRFFFbgW'FW"7V6Ɨ7G2ǖVV7G&ǗFRf67VBBF6fV7F&V2F22FVƗfW&VB7G&rw&wFB6vVBW2FfRV6&PFFR&VF6vFbW 7W7FW'2B26vVBW 7W7FW'2F&VVfBg&&RVff6V@FVƗfW'&6W72vF&R&GV7G0'&frFV"6FW2FR6RfV6PBFR6RFR'&VFr&VFr6W'f6W2$%20vBWRגfWrbখ'FB6W&6RbFFVBfVRvR&PWFrW"$%2ffW&rgW'FW#v^( fP&VG7F'FVB"fW7FVB@&VFWfVVBW"'&Ff&B$%2f6ƗGF26FRf7W6W2vfVR pfVRFV66ǒ6WG2vW&PvR&RfW7FrFRWw&Fr`&VFrf6ƗFW2B&R'F7V&ǒFPƖ6F"v66VFW27&V6pFRWfVbFV66B6W2&W6W&6Pf&RFFR$%2'W6W72&vrg&Ч6RvFW"FvFW"FWF2F&R6WVF6VB&VG2v66VFR&V7F6V֗7G'VFW 2Ɩ6V6RFW"&Vb'F7V"FW&W7B2FPVf7GW&Rb6Ɩ6RVV62f f&W2GW7G&W26VFrFRvFW G&VFVB6V7F"Wr&vR66PGW7G&&VFrf6ƗG2VBF&P'VBBWGFW'v'FF6W'fRFRFW&66V6R6V7F"F26&ƗGv6VFPfW'6vf6B&rFW&Bf6V@&GV7G27F&vR2vV2WFV6fPWVVBFVF6FVBF6WF6r@VF6VB&VG2ࠠ
