Krahn Chemies ties to the lubricants industry and its technical expertise made it a valuable partner to broaden our customer base, said Per Klintstam, president of Ergon Europe MEA.

The Hygold base oils from Ergon are an excellent addition to our existing product portfolio of functional additives for the lubricants industry, said Guido Gerdes, Krahn Chemies segment manager for lubricants.
