09/28/2020 | 10:25am EST

KINGSPORT, Tenn. -- Eastman Chemical Company is pleased to announce that, in August 2020, Eastman Chemical Ltd entered into a distribution agreement with DKSH, a Swiss-headquartered company. DKSH will be tasked with growing Eastman's Personal Care business in existing markets and expanding into new ones, as a distributor of Eastman across the entire Asia-Pacific region. This collaboration marks another step along Eastman's transformation journey to create value to customers through faster innovation and commercialization.

"As a specialty materials company, we continue to expand our inhouse R&D and formulation skills and capabilities. Complementary to this, we will now also be drawing on the valuable formulation expertise of a company deeply rooted in communities across the Asia Pacific region that has its own labs. This will help local customers get access to our personal care and cosmetics innovations more swiftly and easily," says Christian Derbez, Sales Director AP region at Eastman.

Roland Kraut, Vice President, Global Personal Care Industry, Performance Materials, DKSH adds: "We have a dedicated team of more than 100 personal care specialists who understand the language of the brand owners in the Asia Pacific region. We are excited about this relationship and look forward to putting Eastman's products in the spotlight in this important market."
