The article reports on the decision of European chemical distributor Azelis to acquire Rhodia Hellas. The purchase of Rhodia Hellas expands Azelis' coverage to countries such as Greece, Bulgaria and Cyprus. Rhodia's activities in the Balkans are focused on sales as it has very little manufacturing capacity there and markets are relatively small. Rhodia Hellas will be renamed Amaud Hellas once the purchase has been completed in September 2006.
