Univar recently announced that it has completed its acquisition of the Quaron business in Belgium and the Netherlands.

“There is a strong strategic and cultural fit between the two companies,” said John van Osch, president, Univar Europe, Middle East, and Africa. “The expanded product portfolio and increased logistical capabilities provide major benefits for both customers and suppliers, as well as supporting our growth plans in the region. The acquisition gives Univar a more balanced geographical spread between the Netherlands and Belgium and offers employees an even wider scope for career progression.”

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 Benelux’s market activities, supplier relationships, facilities and locations are a perfect fit to the Univar network,” said Wido Waelput, who joined Univar in July 2010 as regional director, Benelux. “Both our companies share the same dedication to building and maintaining relationships with customers and suppliers. We share the same focus on quality, excellence, expertise, safe and sustainable business, and commitment to adding value. We are convinced that our employees and business partners will benefit greatly from the new combined organization.”
