Solventis proudly announces that it has taken over the Kilfrost Aircraft de-icing business in continental Europe through an exclusive licensing agreement with Kilfrost Group Plc.
Solventis will service the aircraft de-icing customers through its 100% affiliate Kilfrost Europe Ltd.
Solventis is one of the leading trading companies for glycols and chemicals, as well as an important and growing producer of automotive products such as car coolants and brake fluids. The aircraft de-icing business perfectly complements our existing product range and will benefit from the excellent relationship Solventis has built with the major chemical producers. The licensing deal is strongly supported by INEOS Oxide, one of the major producers of Mono Propylene Glycol (MPG) in Europe, a critical raw material for de-icing fluids.
Solventis’ exceptional facility located in Antwerp is the largest Glycol blending plant in Europe. Our proven manufacturing and logistic competences combined with state-of –the –art technology from Kilfrost will lead to a hugely successful contribution to the aircraft de-icing business.
Kilfrost UK will continue to provide technical support to Kilfrost Europe and will continue to develop the next generation of aircraft de-icing fluids.
Kilfrost Europe Ltd is fully operational and customers can reach us as follows:
