DGE turns 25!

DGE Smart Specialty Chemicals was established in 1996 as Distributors Group Europe bv in the Netherlands. So, we turn 25 this year! Time flies when you do what you are passionate about! 😊

And today we want to thank to all the people that have shared such passion, from our company founders to our current amazing team of professionals. Our achievements are just the result of the effort of every person within this big family.

In these 25 years DGE has grown in revenue, coverage, organization, and services, but we keep the same entrepreneurial and nonconformist spirit that led us here.

Nowadays DGE is a pure player dedicated to marketing and distributing premium specialty chemicals finished products throughout 30 countries. With more than 200 technical sales professionals into the marketplace, we offer the most compelling local presence.

Over the years, we contracted with every single global chemical leader in the following categories: Lubricants; Adhesive & Sealants and Encapsulants & Electronic protection.

Our European digital platform and advanced logistic model provide “state of the art” services and operating facilities which enable our customers to boost their business performance. At local level, end clients benefit from the best standards of quality in terms of technical guidance, storage, delivery, after sales operations and F&A services.

On marketing side, “DGE Analytics” our market intelligence program, offers to our clients, shareholders and members up-to-date and relevant analytics to better access to more than 80.000 clients across Europe.


The organization grows. Our values remain

DGE core values, based upon transparency and integrity, have been vital along the way to establish profitable and long-lasting relationship with all our stakeholders. Today, more than ever, we strengthen our commitment with those.

INTEGRITY…                   in all our actions
TRANSPARENCY…      on our business model
INNOVATION…              to embrace and drive change
WINNING SPIRIT…      as source of value creation for our stakeholders
