Company Portrait

Established in 1906 in Hamburg, Biesterfeld today looks back at over 100 years of experience in international trade with salt, industrial chemicals, plant protection products and fertilizers.

Due to extensive restructuring of the company, this sector has operated as an independent division as of the year 1997. The successful business development led to the continuous expansion of the company's worldwide presence: branches were established in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, New York, Mexico City, Guatemala City and Warsaw.

As a result of the creation of a joint venture with Siemsglüss, the sector became independent in 2000 through the formation of Biesterfeld Siemsglüss International GmbH.

Due to this move, the sector of pharmaceutical raw materials and agents was added to the range of products, and the group of companies' radius of action was considerably expanded thanks to Siemsglüss' 50 years of experience in the international pharmaceutical trade. The location in Mumbai was added, additional branches came into being in Jakarta, and Sao Paulo.

In 2005, Biesterfeld took over MPC's 30% stake in Biesterfeld Siemsglüss International, and in 2006, the name was changed to Biesterfeld International GmbH.

In 2011, the U.S. office was relocated to Miami. The latest addition to the group are the offices in Istanbul, established in 2012, and in Bangkok, Thailand, effective as of spring 2013.
