Avantium partners with Nikki-Universal to boost its catalysis business in Japan

Avantium Catalysis and Japan-based catalyst and process licensing company Nikki-Universal entered into an agency agreement to better serve Avantium’s customers and boost its business in Japan. Through Nikki-Universal, Avantium expects to generate leads for both its Flowrence® units as well as for service projects.

Japan is highly advanced in technology and has a large chemicals sector, including some large refineries. The country has a strong focus on catalysis research and data quality and has a global top-three position in patent-filings on catalysis. It therefore offers the perfect environment for the Catalysis business unit of Avantium.

Steven Olivier, managing director of Avantium Catalysis, comments: “We highly value the strong network of Nikki-Universal within the Japanese chemical sector. Also, we see that our Flowrencetm technology delivers the performance that chemical and catalyst companies in Japan value. We are therefore very pleased to enter into a partnership with Nikki-Universal who will help us further boost our rapidly growing business in Japan.”

Hirofumi Itoh, President of Nikki-Universal, says: “We believe that an advanced high-throughput platform for catalysts and adsorbents testing provided by Avantium will assist the promoting of development of chemical related technology and business in Japan through our business network”.
