Azelis and Stepan Europe Surfactants further their partnership in Turkey for functional markets

Azelis, a leading global innovation service provider in the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry, is pleased to announce the strengthening of its partnership with Stepan Europe Surfactants (Stepan), a leading producer of surfactants. Effective immediately, Azelis is the exclusive distributor of Stepan’s surfactant product line for functional markets in Turkey.

With Stepan’s high-quality products, this collaboration strengthens Azelis’ footprint in Turkey. Together, the two companies have a long. lasting distribution partnership in many other countries across Europe, Middle East and Africa, and this agreement is in line with Azelis’ commitment to grow organically with strategic partners.

Aligning perfectly with Stepan’s mission, innovation and sustainability are two of Azelis’ growth drivers. Stepan has a broad product portfolio of specialty surfactants and emulsifiers that serve the functional markets in areas such as construction, emulsion polymerization, industrial lubricants and additives, firefighting, and oil field, amongst others.

Stijn Vandevoorde, Group Principal Manager at Azelis, comments:

“Stepan’s high-quality surfactants range is a great complement to our product portfolio in Turkey, and the partnership further strengthens our lateral value chain. This new distribution agreement enables us to offer innovative, custom-made solutions to the industrial markets in Turkey. It is also an important acknowledgment of our continuous efforts to be a preferred and trusted partner on a global scale.”

Philippe Nastasi, European Sales Director at Stepan Company, adds:

“Azelis continues to be a privileged partner for Stepan, as demonstrated over the past years. Their strong market penetration in industrial markets, the expertise of their team in building, construction, and performance chemicals, and their proven technical knowledge give us the confidence to further strengthen our collaboration. We very much look forward to this new partnership in Turkey.”
