20th Anniversary for KAREVA Marketing GmbH

On March 15th 2014 the KAREVA Marketing GmbH celebrated its twentieth anniversary.  
Originally only being founded as a distribution company for Calcium Chloride, the company developed gradually into a wholesale supplier for the oil and gas industry.

Initial purpose of its creation in 1994 was the distribution of home branded dutch calcium chloride production. First shareholders were Remy GmbH & Co. KG / Hamburg and Kappe Intermediar BV in Veendam, The Netherlands. KAREVA was at that time one of the first companies in Europe who produced Calcium Chloride in highly concentrated prills by successfully applying a spray-dryer method from milk and dairy technology in the salt production.

Traditionally sold as "road salt" to road maintenance depots, new clients came from the oil and gas sector, which used calcium chloride as an additive for drilling fluids. These customer relationships would further define and develop the product portfolio: More products were added to the range step by step, relationships with new suppliers and customers were established.

By 2004, the production of calcium chloride was sold and Kappe Intermediar BV resigned as shareholder. As a result, KAREVA became a 100% subsidiary and part of the Remy - Group, Hamburg.

Starting with the founding of the Remy rep office in Shanghai in 2006, new asian suppliers were identified and exclusive contract arrangements for countries were negotiated. Markets were initially South America, later the Caribbean, and Eastern Europe.

The vertical integration was successfully rolled out further by a laboratory in Maturín / Venezuela: In cooperation with Remy & Stute Venezuela, samples are being tested according to API standards under the direction of a Venezuelan engineer starting in 2012. One year later KAREVA expanded into the North Africa / Middle East region - especially this region, a technical engineer in Algeria has been hired.

Today KAREVA is a global company that responds best to the needs of its customers by steadily expanding their presence in the world market with its specialty chemicals and Know-How.
