Superabsorbents: Evonik Joins Forces with Yiğitoğlu Kimya

Evonik Chooses Yiğitoğlu Kimya to Represent its Superabsorbents Portfolio in Turkey and other Central Asian Countries

Effective July 1, 2021, Evonik has carved out its Baby Care business, i.e., the production and distribution of superabsorbents and acrylic acid, and transferred it to independent companies in Germany and in the USA.

The new Evonik Superabsorber enterprises bring together around 950 employees who work at the production sites in Krefeld, Rheinmünster and Marl in Germany, and Greensboro and Garyville in the USA.

As part of its newly formulated strategic road map, the German subsidiary Evonik Superabsorber has decided to join forces with Yiğitoğlu Kimya, Istanbul, as its sole distributor of its super absorbents in Turkey and various countries in Central Asia. Yiğitoglu Kimya has been established in 1956 and over the past 20 years has been in different business relationships with Evonik group companies.

‘’We look forward to the newly established expansion of our partnership, which will complement our product range to the hygienic industry with our newly formulated hot-melt range, myAdhesive’’ says Emrullah Yiğitoğlu, Chairman of the Turkish group. Yiğitoğlu has invested heavily in its manufacturing plant at Çorlu/Tekirdağ and further diversified its production portfolio. Applied Technology Laboratories support the industry sector with innovative product solutions.

Turkey is one of the leading European producers of baby diapers, female care and incontinence articles.
