German Distribution Group expands to the Iberian Peninsula
Chemicals distributor OQEMA AG (Mönchengladbach, Germany) has announced the acquisition of Proquibasa S.A. (Barcelona, Spain) for an undisclosed sum. The company focuses on Coatings, Construction & Adhesives, Industrial Cleaning, Textile & Water Treatment, Food, Feed and Pharma. It has been active in the Spanish distribution market for over 40 years, and more recently also in Portugal and North Africa.
Proquibasa has two main warehouses, located in Barcelona and Madrid, and a network of warehouse locations across Spain and Portugal. Proquibasa’s range of commodity and semi-speciality products and their value-added services are seen as a perfect fit with OQEMA’s “full-line” distribution offering. Ivan Sanchez, who has managed Proquibasa with its team of more than 60 employees since 2016, will continue to lead the company, OQEMA said in the announcement.
No financial details were disclosed on the transaction.
