DyStar has resigned from the Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers (ETAD), and joined TEGEWA as a member January this year.
DyStar made this decision in response to new industry challenges, after careful considerations during its periodical reviews and business alignment sessions on current global business needs, market demands and customers’ requirements. The company concluded the immediate need to work with an organization that can better represent and effectively support the chemical industry in a fast and challenging environment, and at the same time, provide essential support to textile chemical producers, brands and retailers, among other stakeholders in the worldwide supply chain.
Being a sector association within the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI), TEGEWA is actively involved in the work of VCI. The association has over 100 members and represents manufacturers of chemical substances and mixtures, such as surfactants, textile, paper and leather auxiliaries, colorants, cosmetic raw materials, antimicrobial agents, polymeric flocculants and allied products.
TEGEWA is also deeply engaged with DyStar and its partners of GCIRT on many meaningful discussions for the industry, such as communications with the ZDHC Organization.
Fanny Vermandel, Vice President, Global Marketing Coloration at DyStar, says, “At DyStar, we are customer-focused. We find TEGEWA a good fit and appreciate their diverse network. Most importantly, we are delighted to learn that TEGEWA works with many organizations such as IVTG and t+m, brands, retailers and other stakeholders in the worldwide supply chain.”
Through all memberships, past, present and new, DyStar hopes to contribute and engage widely across the industry network and supply chain with its decades of expertise and innovations on a purpose-driven conversational basis, strengthening competitive edge globally.
