Sinojie Hanson Limited was formed in 2005 and in January 2010 Hanson Family Holdings purchased a significant minority interest. The company provides fine chemical sourcing, development and supply organisation in the People's Republic of China, targeted at Western world markets and particularly Europe. Western fine chemical users have been sourcing out of China for over 30 years, but the supply chain has been difficult to manage. The issues have predominantly been related to reliability, quality, traceability, health and safety, environmental and logistics. Sinojie Hanson has managed to eliminate these issues by virtue of its structure and approach, leading to the satisfaction of both customer and supplier. By being based in China, we are able to offer products and services to the World's chemical industry at highly competitive prices, without compromising on quality, safety and service. This has, in turn, resulted in us becoming the Chinese partner of choice to a number of important international customers. Sinojie Hanson's European operations centre is now based at Hanson Logistics and brings an expansion in business scope to cover freight, warehousing, storage and distribution activities.
