DyStar resigns from ETAD and joined TEGEWA
DyStar, a leading specialty chemical company with a heritage of more than a century in product development and innovation has resigned from Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers (ETAD) and joined TEGEWA as a member since January 2020.
Despite being one of the major sponsors and supporters of ETAD for many years, DyStar had to make this decision in response to the new industry challenges. The executive decision to leave ETAD and join TEGEWA was made after careful considerations on current global business needs, market demands and customers’ requirements. In conclusion, DyStar decided to work with an organization that can better represent and effectively support the Chemical Industry in a fast and challenging environment, and at the same time, provide essential support to the Textile Chemical Producers, the Brands and Retailers, among other stakeholders in the worldwide supply chain.
TEGEWA, being a sector association within the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI), is also actively involved in the work of VCI. The association has over 100 members and represents manufacturers of chemical substances and mixtures, such as surfactants, textile, paper and leather auxiliaries, colorants, cosmetic raw materials, antimicrobial agents, polymeric flocculants and allied products.
TEGEWA has also deeply engaged with DyStar and its partners of GCIRT on many meaningful discussions for the industry, such as communications with the ZDHC Organisation.
Fanny Vermandel, Vice President, Global Marketing Coloration at DyStar said, “At DyStar, we are customer-focused. We find TEGEWA a good fit and appreciate their diverse network. Most importantly, we are delighted to learn that TEGEWA works with many organizations such as IVTG and t+m, Brands and Retailers and other stakeholders in the worldwide supply chain.”
