Salt has been AkzoNobel's business since 1918. Starting as Royal Dutch Salt Industries (KNZ) in Boekelo, the Netherlands, they first obtained their products by means of evaporation in open pans. The salt was dissolved in underground salt layers, formed hundred of millions of years ago. In 1926, they adopted the far more energy efficient method of vacuum evaporation. When the Twente-Rijn canal was built in the early ‘30’s, they moved their plant to Hengelo, to take advantage of the waterway connections.

The discovery of salt in the Northern part of the Netherlands in 1951, and the facilities for loading seagoing ships there, led to the construction of a salt-producing plant in Delfzijl, which came on stream in 1959. Around 1963 they extended their business by starting salt production in Denmark, to serve the Scandinavian markets as well.

These days, AkzoNobel's Salt Specialties is one of the world's leading salt specialists, supplying high-quality products for all different kinds of applications. Salt Specialties exports its products throughout the whole world. These products cover a broad spectrum of grain sizes, ranging from micro fine, to coarse salt, to compacted products. Their business is well known for the strong brand names under which its products are sold, such as Jozo®, KNZ®, Sanal®, Suprasel®, Broxo® and Broxomatic®.

In their market approach they distinguish six end-customer market segments: Retail, Food, Pharma, Agriculture, Water Treatment and Industrial. With this segmentation they are able offer different value propositions to customers varying from commodities in the industrial market to high value specialties in the pharmaceutical market.

Their philosophy is that they deliver 'Tomorrow’s Answers Today' and therefore they are constantly looking for new and better products that serve the needs of their customers and that can improve their businesses.

With philosophies as closely matched to those at ADGER, it makes perfect sense for ADGER to be a supplier of Akzo Nobel salt products.
