Caldic and Kolb Distribution Ltd. enter exclusive partnership for pharmaceutical surfactants and emulsifiers portfolio in Europe

Rotterdam, the Netherlands, April 26, 2022 – Caldic is proud to announce that it has signed an exclusive partnership with pharmaceutical manufacturer Kolb Distribution Ltd. This significant agreement of Caldic as its partner secures new opportunities in the pharmaceutical market coverage for Kolb Distribution Ltd’s portfolio in surfactants and emulsifiers. Distributing its high-end and wide range in Benelux, UK, France, Italy, Iberica and Nordics will further accelerate growth in the pharmaceutical business in Europe and simultaneously supports customers in satisfying technical tailor made requirements.

Successful track record

When it comes to pharmaceuticals, medicine, biopharma and nutraceutical products reliability as well as top quality ingredients are key. Formulating with an API needs the right carrier that can properly solubilize it and make it bioavailable. Kolb Distribution Ltd’s polysorbates, sorbitan esters and other non -ionic surfactants have a long and successful track record for solubilizing, emulsifying and enhancing the API’s in formulations. Their products are well established in pharmaceutical formulations as process aids, during purification steps, in diagnostics, and in many biotechnological processes.

Uwe Husemann, District Sales Manager, Christoph Häusler, Product Manager Excipients for Pharmaceutical Applications and Benjamin Süess Key Account Manager at Kolb Distribution Ltd say: “In Caldic Europe we have found a very strong partner to promote and distribute our pharmaceutical excipients into the highly regulated market that is pharma today.
