Univar announced it has successfully completed the acquisition of the Quaron business in Belgium and The Netherlands. This step reflects Univar’s commitment to growth and to strengthening its position, reach, service, technical expertise and product portfolio in the Benelux. Trading as a combined entity commenced on January 10, 2011. An integration team has been set up with representatives from both organizations to enhance the merger process. The team covers all business functions and has been established to ensure seamless continuity for all customers, suppliers and business partners. Quaron’s logistics network in Belgium and The Netherlands is supported by laboratories, tank and warehouse storage and mixing facilities. It brings additional added-value services such as storage, diluting and mixing. Quaron Benelux’s commitment to safety and environmental protection in every aspect of its operations sit well with Univar’s own long-standing commitment to sustainability and its pioneering U+stainability program.
