At IMCD, we’ve always been curious,
passionate, and ambitious.

Right from the early days, we have applied our entrepreneurial mindset to every opportunity that we uncover through working with our suppliers and customers.

This, in turn, has fuelled our drive to adopt a true partnership model. Not satisfied with being the ‘middleman’, we set out to evolve and became one of the first distributors of speciality chemicals and ingredients to share information transparently,
 delivering sales data and market intelligence through a single point of contact. Through taking expertise in-house, we’ve grown to provide our customers with the technical know-how they need to turn market trends into products that make a real difference.  


Under the management of Piet van der Slikke, a group of companies within Internatio-Müller form a separate division to become a new player in the field of speciality chemicals distribution.

2001 - 2004

Internatio-Müller Chemical Distribution becomes a stand-alone business and formally changes its name to IMCD.
