Aako has expanded its product portfolio for the European market of cosmetic producers with UV-filters. This new activity resulted from a successful collaboration - over a good many years - with Chinese suppliers.
We would like to distinguish ourselves as a distributor of UV-filters by offering suntan lotion manufacturers in Europe the best price/quality ratio and a guaranteed and stable delivery.
A great deal of importance is attached to the need for a proper protection against sunlight. European regulations impose strict requirements on suntan lotion products. With our UV-filters, we wish to respond to this development and contribute to the manufacture of safe suntan lotions for consumers.
Since 1970, AAKO has been active in the development, production, registration, promotion, sale of a complete portfolio of proven branded off patent and patented crop and non-crop products, including herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, plant growth regulators and rodenticides that provide the highest level of protection. We supply distributors around the world with our products, with an emphasis on North African and Middle Eastern markets.
The market is never static, and neither is AAKO. We have an innovative culture comprised of a diverse group of talented people, who develop, register, manufacture and market high quality sustainable and integrated solutions in various markets, meeting their stringent quality and environmental standards.
Coating Specialities is a new and developing department within Aako that focuses mainly on serving producers of conventional and digital inks, paints and plastics. We provide custom-made raw materials for new and developing product lines and alternative raw materials for existing product lines within the international market-place. We serve international players as well as local market players.
Through our industry expertise our goal is to become a valued supplier offering competitively-priced speciality raw materials of outstanding quality and creative, tailor-made solutions for product developments and improvements.
Aako has been trading in fragrances since the seventies. It has developed strong ties with suppliers and customers. Over the years, we have enlisted several agencies and representations and have gained a great deal of experience in supporting starting suppliers. Our customers in the European market have come to know and value our strength and approach.
We are regularly consulted by suppliers of fragrances from around the world as the expert on the European market. We would like to distinguish ourselves in this market by our prompt and reliable deliveries, competitive prices and the introduction of new generic products.
Working with several large pharmaceutical manufacturers, Aako markets APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients) and FDFs (finished dosage forms). We also supply intermediates for the production of APIs as well as excipients that can be used in the production of FDFs.
Through the numerous opportunities that fit into our department, we are currently expanding and strengthening our position in the Benelux. In addition to supplying new generic APIs, we will start offering over-the-counter (OTC) products.
Through our cooperation with other Aako product groups, including Personal Care, we can adjust our range of products to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical market.
Our approach is tested and is characterised by entering into close relations with principals and clients and by developing in-depth knowledge of products, markets and clients.
As a supplier of optical whitening agents, Aako is not new to the detergent market. Our customers are detergent producers who operate at a global and regional level. We are broadening our ambitions and selling a wider product range with the product group Detergents.
Our target is to supply multinational and regional detergent producers in Europe with a full package of raw materials; Aako as a one-stop-shop in the detergent market.
Our current position as a supplier of optical whitening agents to large players gives us plenty of opportunity to expand our services. We do so by following the tried and tested Aako approach and by investing in our relationship with principals and customers. We aim to develop market knowledge jointly.
Aako has been a player in the market of Personal Care and Hair Care for over 40 years. We have gained a strong position in this market.

We offer expertise on cosmetic products and raw materials in Germany and the Benelux.

In this way, we expect to be able to gain the loyalty of a larger number of customers and suppliers.
