We will now have established operations in Europe and Asia, with the ability to service our customers from stock hubs and partners. The combined product offer will position us well for further growth.”

    “I see positive outcomes as we enter into this new partnership,” said Billy Gittins, managing director of Tennants Fine Chemicals. “Our combined manufacturing footprint across two key regions will offer better security of supply. Our regional service strategy in China and SE Asia has proved beneficial and will be further strengthened with the addition of Eternis’ products. I am excited about our future together.”
