Brenntag Essentials inaugurates new mixing and blending facility in Vietnam

Brenntag, a global market leader in chemicals and ingredients distribution, has announced the opening of its new mixing and blending facility in Dong Nai province, a key economic zone in the South of Vietnam, approximately 30 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City.

The facility in Dong Nai represents a significant investment in advancing Brenntag’s capabilities and delivering high-quality products and services to meet the growing demands of its customers, according to the company.

Its strategic location is close to Brenntag Vietnam’s last mile operations, a regional tollgate with bulk storage tanks with capacities of over 21,000 cubic metres, and a jetty catering to vessels with deadweight tonnage capacity of up to 50,000.

Ewout van Jarwaarde, chief executive officer of Brenntag Essentials said: “Brenntag Essentials brings our ‘triple‘ business model to life with the new mixing and blending operation in Vietnam, by delivering local operational and service excellence in our last mile operations, optimising and upgrading our Vietnam site network and strengthening regional tollgate capacities, and global sourcing and interregional optimisation by connecting the Vietnam facility to Brenntag Essentials’ global supply chain network.”

The new facility occupies over 3900 square metres and boasts a modern design optimised for safety, efficiency and sustainability. Equipped with state-of-the-art mixing and blending capabilities, and advanced testing laboratories to ensure every product meets quality and regulatory standards, the site will serve as a hub for the mixing, blending, drumming, and packaging of a wide range of chemical products tailored to meet the diverse needs of its customers.

Chan Huan Yong, president of Brenntag Essentials Asia Pacific said: “I am incredibly proud of our Vietnam team, who has consistently been delivering outstanding service to our customers and growing the Brenntag Essentials business in Vietnam through the years.
