Following a Solid Strategy
The cornerstones of our long term strategy are embedded in our company's acronym:
is essential for delivering the highly valued products and related services that our customers demand. Throughout Taminco, the team spirit is present: the passion to work closely together, to help each other, to listen and act with respect, comprehension and openness. Since the globalization of our business, it has also been necessary â€“ and worthwhile â€“ to build multicultural teams. Bringing together the experience and entrepreneurship of people in Europe, the Americas and Asia is a real strength and a solid basis for meeting the challenges that lie ahead.
the world around us is changing rapidly and those who adapt promptly will be the most successful. The speed at which the chemical industry is finding new avenues of growth within the boundaries of current laws and regulations requires agility at all levels of the organization. This is a challenge and an opportunity at the same time, because we at Taminco are always ready to go the extra mile. There are no uniform solutions anymore: each customer, each product, each country is unique and deserves its own special approach. A tentative sales lead today could become tomorrowâ€™s long-term customer.
continuously focusing on new market developments has become a way of life at Taminco. There is always a need for differentiation. Understanding the needs of our customers and adapting our products and services to ever changing business models and processes is what itâ€™s all about. Taminco succeeds in offering such added value and creating win-win situations with its partners.
Internationalization - in todayâ€™s business environment it is becoming increasingly important to keep close track of our customer base in terms of their behavior and investment projects. To survive, we need to mirror our strategy on the growing market segments and globalize our business where those markets or customers are developing. The conclusion is no surprise: Asia is the place to be. Many other opportunities in different products and market are developing at an increasing pace. Ultimately, success will depend on networking and local partnerships. The speed of innovation and implementation is crucial. This means taking the right investment decision when the opportunity arises, and always striving to keep one step ahead of the competition.
Integration â€“ is of paramount importance to our company and business. Be it the chemistry between people, between molecules or between people & molecules. Taminco wants to bring it all together. Taminco simply wants to be the benchmark when it comes to integration. There is the integrated technology of our amines and derivatives processes, which takes place to a large extent in our production units.
Innovation â€“ is the successful implementation of good ideas which are generated by the people in our company or through their contacts. Taminco uses patents as the key to translating inventions into commercially successful products and to enhancing our overall competitiveness. But innovation in our business goes much further than science and technology. Innovation encompasses our business processes and enables us to deploy our resources more efficiently. Over the years Taminco has played a key role in the development of several innovative processes for the production of amines and of new derivatives, as well as in impact assessment research, especially for our crop protection product line. These support activities have made it possible for us to extend the scope of our knowledge, thus enabling our stakeholders to make more informed decisions.
building personal contacts and relationships remains one of the most important things in life, even in these times of worldwide internet access and mass data interchange. This is no different when doing business, creating value for all of us. Setting up a professional network of contacts in different industries, companies and institutions takes time, perseverance and effort, but it brings added value to our business and that of our customers. Creating networks is not the exclusive occupation of our sales team. Rather it involves all the people working in our organization, each in his or her area of expertise.
for decades Taminco has been the leading just-in-time supplier of amines used as intermediates in the industry. To meet the customersâ€™ needs, we have used a range of dedicated tank containers to transport these products to their production facilities. The transport of gaseous products is a significant challenge for our industry. At Taminco we have met this challenge through the development of our own technical expertise and close partnership with our customers and suppliers. Over the last couple of years, we have also increased significantly the range of products derived from our amines.
Taminco has made a clear commitment to maintaining and developing the highest standard in all our operations. We are working conscientiously on a daily basis to improve our quality, efficiency and cost. As a result of these efforts, our products are recognized as the best in the market. But not only the products determine the quality. The quality of the services we deliver is becoming more and more important for our customers and for our success. â€œDo it right the first timeâ€ is the motto for operational excellence. Being a chemical company, we guarantee the safety of our products and services, and we care for the environment. We fully endorse and respect the principles of Responsible Care.
