The manufacturer of textile auxiliaries and dyes, Dystar Singapore Pte. Ltd., Singapore, has resigned from Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers (ETAD), Basel/Switzerland, and has joined the Association of Manufacturers of Process and Performance Chemicals (TEGEWA), Frankfurt/Germany, as a member since January 2020.
The executive decision to leave ETAD and join TEGEWA was made after careful considerations during the periodical reviews and business alignment sessions on current global business needs, market demands and customers’ requirements. The company concluded the immediate need to work with an organization that can better represent and support the chemical industry in a fast and challenging environment and at the same time provide essential support to the textile chemical producers, the brands and retailers, among other stakeholders in the worldwide supply chain.
TEGEWA, being a sector association within the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI), Frankfurt/Germany, is also actively involved in the work of VCI. The association has over 100 members and represents manufacturers of chemical substances and mixtures, such as surfactants, textile, paper and leather auxiliaries, colorants, cosmetic raw materials, antimicrobial agents, polymeric flocculants and allied products.
