Joint Venture Demerger Complete
Dear Sempermed USA Team,

I am pleased to inform you that the joint venture transaction between Semperit and Sri Trang has been completed today. Sempermed USA is now officially a wholly owned subsidiary of the Semperit Group and is fully integrated into a strong global organization that is committed to providing the highest levels of customer service and satisfaction. We will be an essential part of Semperit’s growth strategy.

A strong Sempermed USA integration team, consisting of Sales, Marketing, Regulatory and Logistics, have been working hand in hand with the Semperit team, led by Markus Kapeller, to ensure that there are no interruptions in our daily business. All operational activities will continue to run smoothly, and we will continue working as a team as we have in the past. United with Semperit, we are striving to learn from each other so that we reinforce existing strengths and expertise in all areas. The new structure allows us to grow, improve, and become even more forward thinking.

As always, our focus will be on providing the best customer service, logistics, marketing and sales support to our customers. We will continue to provide top of the line solutions to their hand protection needs, enhanced by our stronger relationship with Semperit.

As a first step, you will receive an internal newsletter called ”Semperit Informs“. This is a regular communication tool used within the group and will be available to us from now on. In the current edition, you will find some details that are shared with all Semperit colleagues.

If you have any questions, the integration team members are available to answer them. In the meantime, we will keep you informed about further developments regarding the integration within the coming days.
