History

Hendri-Gras BV (our parent company) was founded in the Netherlands in 1930. The founder of the company, Mr. Hendrik Gras, began his career with the trade in textiles. Step by step, his successors extended his offer to food products, detergents and, finally, chemical raw materials. At the same time they expanded into Eastern Markets, including former East Germany, Czechoslovakia and Poland.

In 1991 an agency in Poland was opened, from which Hendri-Gras Chemicals (originates) separated as an independent trading company. A year later Hendri Gras BV separated from Hendri-Gras Chemicals BV as an independent trading company. As the name suggests, the company focused on chemical raw materials.

In 2000 a daughter company was established to service Polish customers: Gras-Chem Polska Sp. z o.o. Its task is to source customers and suppliers around the world. Several years on the market has seen it strengthen its position as an independent entity, although Dutch capital is still a majority shareholder.
