(Lanxess) -- Saltigo, a wholly owned subsidiary of specialty chemicals company Lanxess, is looking to specifically develop its range of services beyond its core business of customized and exclusive synthesis. It wants to tap additional business in the field of non-exclusively manufactured fine chemicals. Dirk Sandri, head of Marketing & Sales in Saltigo's Agro & Fine Chemicals business line, sees this segment as an attractive growth market: ⌠With our expertise and technical possibilities we consider a doubling of our sales in the next five years in the field of multi-customer products to be realistic.
The company wants to use the Chemspec Europe tradeshow in Geneva, Switzerland as a platform for showcasing its expertise in the non-exclusive synthesis of sophisticated intermediates and important synthetic building blocks.
Saltigo now has a small but thoroughly attractive range of such fine chemicals available on an industrial scale. These include a selection of toluidine derivatives and products from phosgene chemistry, such as the chloroformates product group or the individual product carbonylbisimidazole. Owing to its years of experience, Saltigo is a recognized expert in the handling of demanding reagents such as phosgene and passes this knowledge on to its customers all over the world in the form of corresponding products.
