Evonik, one of the world's leading specialty chemicals companies, celebrates this month the 10th anniversary of the creation of its brand name with a series of events across the Middle East.
Dr Hendrik Schoenfelder, newly appointed president of Evonik Middle East and Africa (Mena), said: “Our 10th birthday marks the creation of a new brand identity that united a group of companies with a legacy in the chemicals industry that started more than a century ago.”
The first anniversary celebration in the Middle East was held at Dubai Opera, in Dubai, UAE, gathering around seventy representatives of key players in the regional chemicals industry.
Similar events will be organised in Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Iran before the end of the year.
Annick Braun, regional financial officer of Evonik Middle East and Africa, said: “I am happy to be a part of our first 10th anniversary celebration starting in Dubai, and I am sure that this event will create a great dialogue platform between our team and customers across the region.”
Through former brand identities, Evonik started doing business in the Middle East since the 1960s with operations in Egypt and Iran. Today, the German-based conglomerate is present in the region with five offices and one manufacturing plant.
“At our company, we understand that the Middle East and Africa (MEA) is the growth region of the future, and I am very pleased to be in this region and celebrate with our partners this special occasion,” Schoenfelder concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
