"We are proud to announce that in the year of our 100th anniversary, we at Will & Co have strengthened our company with the highly capable and professional organization of Orissa.

Being a company with a strong standing in Personal Care, Home and Industrial Care, and Health Care, Orissa provides the perfect match with our current businesses in Specialty Chemicals, Food Ingredients, and Personal Care. Based on these three pillars of business, we look forward towards the future with great optimism and excitement for things to come.

Based on our mutual values of positivity, integrity, knowledgeability and a personal approach, we aim to further enhance our added value to our partners by offering even more expertise and more complementary products than before.

Orissa Benelux was founded in 1978 and was led by Raymond Vredevoort for many years, who became the official owner in 1994 and changed the name to Orissa Vredevoort & Dochters. The company grew steadily as a distributor in the Personal & Home Care industry with a primary focus on Fragrances. In the early 2000’s, Raymond’s daughter Mariska took over the management and ownership of the company. In 2011 Philippe de Somere joined the organization and became Mariska’s business partner. Together, with their team of dedicated and experienced professionals, they further developed the business, expanding to other market segments as Home Care, Industrial Care and Health Care.

Mariska Vredevoort and Philippe de Somere, Orissa Management, commented: We are excited to join forces with the Will & Co team, enabling us to develop our activities in our core industries even better than before. Looking at the landscape of application opportunities in our Benelux territory in recent years, the challenge of expanding our organization and activities became ever more relevant with the passing of each quarter. Together with the – also locally embedded - company of Will & Co, Mariska and Philippe are convinced to have found the business partner that makes the best fit for Orissa on the aspects of business economics, organizational support and company culture. Existing customers of Orissa can rest assured in the knowledge that there is no significant overlap in the ingredient portfolios of Will & Co and Orissa - a rare thing to find. New business opportunities can and will be developed in both directions. In this way we give shape to our own growth ambitions as well as those from our loyal and trustworthy business partners, both suppliers and customers. Together with our team, we envision a bright future filled with new successes on the horizon.

Jacques van Lindonk, Managing Director of Will & Co, commented: Throughout the whole process we have found our organizations to be a perfect match. We share the same values in business, and the product and business portfolio is complementary. I am excited to further strengthen our position as distributor of specialty products in the various industries together with Mariska, Philippe and their great team. I am confident that the combination of our businesses will increase our value proposition to our business partners and will enable us to open new routes into the market."
