SurTec and Okuno will cooperate more closely in Europe in the future and thus offer optimal solutions for their customers. Both companies have already been cooperating successfully in Japan for a long time. By expanding the cooperation, applicators in Europe will also benefit from state-of-the-art developments, high-performance products and in-depth know-how from Japan from now on. As one of the market and technology leaders in Asia in the field of chemical specialities for surface treatment, Okuno is an innovative partner especially for plastic coaters and the electronics industry.
SurTec and Okuno combine their strengths with this future-oriented cooperation. Customers benefit from SurTec's extensive network of locations in Europe, through which, for example, Okuno's innovative chromium(VI)-free solutions for pre-treatment in decorative processes will soon be available. The business synergy between the two companies and SurTec's excellent technical support thus open up completely new possibilities and a broader portfolio of high-performance products for customers in Europe. "Okuno's innovative products complement SurTec's portfolio perfectly," said Dr Karsten Grünke, CEO SurTec International GmbH. "Through the cooperation, we can now deliver a chromium(VI)-free decorative process from pre-treatment to trivalent chromium plating to the final top coat, enabling our customers to fully comply with ECHA regulations."
Not only do the sales strategies of the two companies complement each other perfectly, their philosophies are also almost congruent: A strong focus is placed above all on research and development - Okuno and SurTec invest disproportionately in this area, both in terms of personnel and finances. High-performance products and excellent service for customers are essential components of the corporate principles of both companies. And last but not least, sustainable management and a responsible use of resources are in the foreground for the companies. Together, this forms the perfect basis for a successful and forward-looking cooperation.
