KH Chemicals supplying disinfectants free of charge

We all know that the COVID-19 crisis can lead to remarkable initiatives. One of those initiatives has been set-up by mr. Bolt and mr. Ketting of the company KH Chemicals, in cooperation with the company Anker Stuy Verven. KH Chemicals provided two key ingredients used in the manufacturing of disinfecting gels and liquids: IPA (better known as Iso Propyl Alcohol) and Ethanol, both completely free of charge.

BASF took part in the cooperation as well, it added some other ingredients and blended 3.500 liters of disinfecting liquid, again completely free of charge. BASF subsequently put the product in jerry cans and made it ready for distribution. At this stage transport company Trasegro came in play as they moved the jerry cans with finished product, also free of charge, from BASF (Heerenveen) to the headquarters of KH Chemicals in Zwijndrecht.

From here the jerry cans got distributed to institutions in the region that are in desperate need of additional sanitizing fluids such as care homes, residential communities and hospices. KH Chemicals, with its pay-off “It’s all about people”, joined forces with its business partners to help those in need. In the end we all need each other, that’s why it’s all about people!

Alpe d’Huzes

On Thursday June 6th two teams of KH Chemicals participated in the “Alpe d’Huzes”.A motivated group of runners and bikers conquered the famous mountain “Alpe d’Huez” in France to raise money for cancer research and the improvement of quality of life of people with cancer.

The motto “giving up is not an option” is exactly the thing the sportsmen of KH Chemicals have done. Some ran up the mountain even 2 times other cycled 4 times up the mountain, quite an achievement!

Apart from the sportive part, various activities were organized to raise as much as possible for this charity. Next to the generous donations from private individuals, also various companies have enthusiastically sponsored. The final ranking is € 42.036 in total, 100% of which goes to cancer research.

We are proud of that!

In particular, we want to thank our sponsors without whom this result could never have been achieved!:
