Hard surface cleaners
PRODUCTS FOR INDUSTRY AND PUBLIC FACILITIES
Food and drink
Kitchens and catering
From car polish to window cleaner. From colour detergents to odour neutralizers. From household cleaning products to highly efficient disinfectants. Whether for an operating table or for the kitchen worktop at home.
We all use cleaning products for different purposes and in various forms on a daily basis. For all these different requirements, the Brenntag team for the cleaning product industry has exactly the right solution to make our lives easier!
Brenntag’s cleaning product experts are familiar with our customers’ different needs and adapt to the current and changing trends in this industry. The requirements are diverse: manufacturers of cleaning products ask for green, sustainable products, for example, or for skin-friendly detergents and cleaning products that deliver excellent results even at low temperatures. Our experts have extensive specialist knowledge and work with the customer to develop tailored solutions.
To enable us to best serve the customers’ different wishes, we at Brenntag distinguish between one part of the business that covers household requirements and another part that supplies products for industrial and institutional purposes such as hospitals. After all, not every dishwasher is the same. Whilst a wash cycle on a domestic appliance lasts around 90 minutes, an industrial dishwasher cannot take more than around 90 seconds.
In particular by opening our detergent research and application centre in Barcelona, Brenntag has expanded its extensive portfolio of products and services for the different segments of this industry yet further. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the lab now also offers research and development for customers and suppliers in the cleaning product industry in our EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) region. The lab is affiliated to the materials science research centre at the University of Barcelona, enabling intensive interaction with university experts from different countries and access to labs offering further services.
The aim of our activities is to reduce the consumption of raw materials and improve product performance, thereby creating real added value for our customers!
For a large European manufacturer of cleaning products that, among other things, makes detergents in the form of liquid detergents, washing powders and detergent capsules for household use, the Brenntag experts developed a formulation to better adapt the product to customer requirements. The Brenntag experts were able to develop a more environmentally-friendly formula that even delivers better cleaning results in some areas.
This is just one example of the many tasks and challenges we face in this industry. “We want to continue to evolve, share our know-how with our partners and offer the best possible solutions for our customers and suppliers”, says Franz Fischer.
In our lab in Barcelona, we conduct extensive performance tests, which we present to the customer.
»The wishes and inquiries we receive from our customers in the cleaning product industry are highly individual. There are, of course, trends that apply across a number of market segments, but more specifically, we always have to adapt to a customer and their particular needs. That makes our work very interesting, but at the same time you have to be flexible and offer efficient solutions!«
Success requires teamwork: concepts and solutions are discussed with colleagues.
