“In the past 30 years, we have achieved a lot,” explains Dr. Karsten Grünke, SurTec’s CEO. “During this time, our experience and product portfolio, as well as the company itself, have grown steadily. Being a preferred supplier of chemical specialties for surface treatment among many customers is thanks to the fact that we are one of a few companies that develop and manufacture customized chemical specialties, and processes and deliver them directly to our global customers.” In addition to acquisitions and diversification in the past few years, SurTec most recently purchased omniTECHNIK, a company that supplies chemical specialties for coaters of screws. The goal was to become a top market supplier for functional coatings of screws. “The continuous expansion of our business portfolio, which includes an active acquisition strategy, is part of Freudenberg Chemical Specialities’ business strategy. The focus lies on attractive and promising services, and technologies and products with an outstanding market position,” says Filip Krulis, Freudenberg Chemical Specialities CEO.
