Stakeholders speak – Customers
- Purchasing Manager, Renner Sayerlack
Renner Sayerlack, a Brazilian-based multinational, is leader in the Latin American market for paints and varnishes for wood. One of our key customers in this market, it relies on Solvay for innovative solutions from renewable sources with low environmental impact.
Like all companies that are benchmarks in their markets, Solvay applies the best and most innovative practices. We know that we can expect excellent service, strict quality control, and competitive costs.
Communication is key in our relationship with Solvay. There is great trust and transparency between our two companies’ teams, whether in sales and purchasing or between our laboratories and technical staff – all the way up to senior management level.
What Renner Sayerlack and Solvay have in common is that we both make sustainable development a priority in all areas, developing sustainable technologies and safer and more eco-friendly systems, and taking care of our employees’ well-being. This is key as we believe that the path of sustainability and respect for the environment will generate the greatest value for business.
We particularly appreciate Solvay’s ability to really understand what we are trying to convey, and to transform it into solutions that meet our needs. This is the result of building trust and transparency between us.
New technologies and the amount of information available are speeding up the dynamics of business. This speed must be maintained and constantly improved in our relations and developments with Solvay.
- Category Manager, Pulping Chemicals, UPM
UPM is a leading Finnish company in the forest-based bio-industry sector that is strongly committed to sustainable business. Solvay enjoys more than 40 years of history in supplying bleaching chemicals like hydrogene peroxide (H2O2) to UPM.
Solvay has a long track record in supplying our industry and we have had a long business relationship. Consequently, Solvay understands our business and our needs very well and is a reliable supplier of one of our key raw materials.
We also work together on development projects, for example, in the areas of sustainability, safety, costs, and new products. The aim is to create new value for both companies.
We hope Solvay will keep daring innovation projects on the agenda – if we stop exploring, we stop developing!
We continuously pursue improvements in everything we do and expect the same from our business partners: achieving significant progress together requires open minds and the open collaboration of every player in the supply chain.
