DyStar has announced that it has resigned from Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers (ETAD) and has joined TEGEWA as a member since January 2020. DyStar, which is committed to sustainability, is a leading specialty chemical company with a heritage of more than a century in product development and innovation.

Despite being one of the major sponsors and supporters of ETAD for many years, DyStar had to make this decision in response to the new industry challenges. The executive decision to leave ETAD and join TEGEWA was made after careful considerations during the company’s periodical reviews and business alignment sessions on current global business needs, market demands and customers’ requirements. It concluded the immediate need to work with an organisation that can better represent and effectively 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, the company said in a media statement.

TEGEWA, being a sector association within the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI), 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. TEGEWA has also deeply engaged with DyStar and its partners of GCIRT on many meaningful discussions for the industry, such as communications with the ZDHC Organisation.

“At DyStar, we are customer-focused. We find TEGEWA a good fit and appreciate their diverse network. Most importantly, we are delighted to learn that TEGEWA works with many organisations such as IVTG and t+m, brands and retailers and other stakeholders in the worldwide supply chain,” Fanny Vermandel, vice president, global marketing colouration at DyStar said.

Through all memberships, past, present, and new, DyStar hopes to contribute and engage widely across the industry network and supply chain with our decades of expertise and innovations on a purpose-driven conversational basis, strengthening competitive edge globally.
