PlusChem in 2023 – a reflection


As we bring the curtain down on the last 12 months, it’s time to reflect on the remarkable journey of PlusChem. Despite challenges thrown our way, we have remained resilient, adaptable, and focused on our core mission of helping clients and suppliers with their chemical sourcing needs.

A changing landscape

The past year has been marked by uncertainties, with the global economy experiencing fluctuations and disruptions due to various factors such as economic shifts, geopolitical events, and the ongoing effects of the Covid pandemic. PlusChem recognised the importance of steadfast leadership, strategic decision-making, and adaptation to the changing landscape.

We proactively monitored market trends, identified emerging opportunities, and swiftly adjusted our strategies to ensure continued growth for our partners and members alike. Close collaboration with our suppliers, partners, and clients played a crucial role in navigating these uncertainties, ensuring a seamless supply chain and maintaining strong relationships.

The green revolution

The chemical industry underwent dynamic shifts over the past 12 months, driven by ever-changing market demands and emerging trends. Due to our international footprint, PlusChem could quickly identify and respond to these needs, positioning ourselves as an industry leader.

The green revolution gained momentum in 2023, with increased focus on sustainability, eco-friendly solutions, and renewable products. PlusChem embraced this shift by expanding our portfolio of environmentally friendly chemicals and collaborating with sustainable suppliers. We have embodied the importance of corporate social responsibility, meeting the demands of a conscious consumer base, and contributing to a greener future.

Fostering Strong Partnerships

At the heart of PlusChem’s success is our dedication to building strong partnerships. Over the last 12 months, we focused on maintaining and nurturing our relationships with clients, suppliers and members.

Regular communication and transparency were key pillars in these partnerships. We listened attentively to the challenges faced by our stake holders, offering customised solutions and support. By collaborating closely with our suppliers, we ensured a reliable supply chain, even amidst disruptions. These collaborations have gone beyond mere business transactions, fostering long-term connections built on trust and mutual growth.

Looking to 2024

As we look to 2024, PlusChem remains committed to driving innovation, meeting evolving industry demands, and exceeding our clients expectations.

We will continue our focus on sustainability, leveraging our expertise to offer eco-friendly solutions to the market. Embracing advancements in digital technologies will further enhance our operations and create seamless experiences for our customers.

Our dedication to fostering strong partnerships remains unwavering. We embrace collaboration and actively seek out opportunities for growth, ensuring our clients receive the highest quality service and solutions. We anticipate the additional signing of at least two new stakeholders in our group which will bring both the sourcing of niche specialty chemicals and their manufacture to our group and their customers in various countries.

These new partnership will give us the capabilities of being able to supply very small volume, high value research, niche or non-commercialised products in gramme or Kg quantities, through to ship loads (8000MT’s) of commodity chemicals. Good news indeed for the early part of 2024!

As we embark on a new year, we express our gratitude to our employees, clients, suppliers, and partners for their unwavering support. Together, we will continue to overcome challenges, embrace opportunities, and shape the future of PlusChem and the chemical distribution industry. Here’s to a future filled with success and prosperity!
