Omsk Carbon sets up European HQ
Waltrop, Germany – Omsk Carbon has signaled its European expansion plans by upgrading the status of its German subsidiary, based in Waltrop, North Rhine Westphalia, to European headquarters.
With its name changed from Omsk Carbon Germany to Omsk Carbon Europe GmbH, the new HQ will assume all European responsibilities, including sales and distribution chain in the continent as of 2016.
“The new setup enables us to act and react much faster to market changes and to develop new opportunities in the most effective way,” said Sven Knopik, general manager sales & marketing at the carbon black supply company.
Omsk Carbon said the development sent the right “signal” to its customers that “we are active, we are local and we are European based”.
