Bringing Businesses Together
I created Imporia on January 2nd 2017, after more than 30 years of enjoyable work in a variety of international and commercial functions in the chemical industry. I spent 12 years with ICI where my focus was mostly on chloralkali products.
The last 18 years. (1998-2016), I was in charge of OCI Chemical Europe, the sales office of OCI Chemical Corp in North America. In this role I imported mineral Soda Ash from Wyoming and Potassium Carbonate from UNID Korea. In 2015, the Ciner Group from Turkey acquired the Soda Ash business of OCI Chemical Corp. Ciner’s sales route to North West Continental Europe was, and still is, Traxys. Hence, sometime after the acquisition of OCI, an exciting opportunity arose to set up an agency agreement with Traxys, so I created Imporia. Since then Imporia has evolved further with the addition of some new and diverse agencies.
