History

AXIEO CONNECTS OUR GLOBAL PARTNERS TO LOCAL MARKETS.

Axieo was formed with the strong belief that the market is calling for a more nimble company that not only delivers excellent products and trades competitively, but responds more quickly to the changing needs of customers. Having acquired Nuplex’s Specialties and Masterbatch businesses via a management buyout backed by CHAMP Private Equity, Axieo is taking up that challenge.

Our Masterbatch business has a history over several decades when the Masterbatch expertise of companies including APS Chemicals and Acquos (formally Ciba and Clariant Australia) were brought together into one company.

The Specialties business was founded by Nuplex in 2002 when it acquired Australian based Asia Pacific Specialty Chemicals which distributed specialty materials used in the construction, food, soap, rubber industries among others. Additional agency and distribution businesses, including Multichem and Polychem were later acquired, creating one of Australia and New Zealand’s leading agency and distribution businesses.

In early 2016, Axieo acquired both Quantum Chemicals and SST (leading supplier of adjuvants and spray additives).

Our promise to you is that we will be different.
