VCH - The roots of the German Chemical Distribution Association (Verband Chemiehandel or VCH) reach back more than 100 years. In Berlin in 1903, the "Verein der Drogen- und Chemikaliengroßhändler" (Society for Wholesalers of Drugs and Chemicals) was founded with the aim of strengthening the position of both the individual members - and also the whole sector - by a cooperation between similar firms. Today, domiciled in Cologne, the VCH represents the production-connecting chemical distributors in Germany with its special characteristics concerning the stockholding distribution trade and the export and the chemical specialty distribution. The association has more than 100 member companies. Together, they generate a turnover of about twelve billion Euros per annum. *
