Vink Chemicals

Vink Chemicals

Vink Chemicals GmbH & Co. KG is a family owned business. Our success is driven by our people and their unrelenting focus on delivering results the right way - by operating responsibly, executing with excellence, applying innovative technologies and capturing new opportunities for profitable growth. We are involved in the production of biocide formulations for a variety of industries. As a service oriented company we also provide our customers with product solutions sourced all over the world.

Experience counts

We trace our beginnings in 1980 when we were part of the founded company Vink + Co. The initial focus was based on source and servicing a group of West African companies. In the 90's Vink + Co. put an additional emphasis on the chemical trade with European manufacturers in need of alternative supplies from all over the world. Since trading with biocide actives has already been an important part of our business we decided in 2008 to start the development of biocide formulations under the brand name Vinkocide and the setup of a new production plant in the north of Germany. In early 2011 Vink Chemicals GmbH & Co. KG had been established and the production was set into operation.

Global scope

Being present all over the world, our diverse and highly skilled global distribution network is growing daily to service our partners with help on the regulatory processes and technical information to get the best solutions for the purpose.

Environmental and safety standards

As a company and as individuals, we take great pride in contributing to the communities and the environment we live in. We have set up a state of the art production site fulfilling to the strict rules of the German government, reducing our emissions to the lowest levels possible.
