DENSO tape, today as it was almost 100 years ago.

Leverkusen, 17 May 2021. In April 2021, DENSO Química S.A.U. celebrated its 50th anniversary of operations in Spain. An occasion to look back and into the future. Which factors were instrumental for the Spanish branch of DENSO Group Germany and which are still decisive for the company’s development? The cornerstones of DENSO’s success are the same today as they were 50 years ago: flexibility, service orientation and quality assurance. Since its foundation in 1971, DENSO Química has developed dynamically with the changing markets, consistently expanded its product portfolio and created individual solutions for its customers.

“I would like to thank our customers for 50 years of trust in DENSO Química. A good and respectful cooperation is essential for a successful development”, says Marco Hamawi, Managing Director of DENSO Química since 2005. “The numerous projects in recent years show me that our customers appreciate our consistency and flexibility and – the consistency in flexibility.” The history of DENSO Química reflects the company’s challenge to adapt to changes in the market, especially during difficult times, and to be able to offer customised solutions to meet project needs.

DENSO Química was founded on 14 April 1971, just in time for the construction of the Spanish gas distribution network. The then newly launched DENSOLEN® tapes, the world’s first co-extruded three-ply tapes, reliably protect the seam welded joints of gas pipes in supra-regional networks and private households from corrosion. With the completion of the network expansion, DENSO Química started the 21st century by gaining a foothold with an expanded range of products in road construction. The TOK® product range brings quality to Spanish roads. Whereas up to now, in Spain it was mainly new construction instead of renovation, the advantages of implementing Europe-wide tested and proven systems and efficient repairs are evident.

In the 2010s, despite the Spanish economic crisis, DENSO Química is aiming for the growth markets of Latin America. With its international sales partners, the business is expanding and will start supplying the South American continent from Spain in the following years. “I am very pleased with the positive development of DENSO Química. With its successful growth from Spain to the Latin American markets, it is contributing to the internationalisation of the DENSO Group,” says Max Wedekind, Managing Director of DENSO Group Germany.

“In its 50-year history, DENSO Química has succeeded very well in growing with the challenges of the markets and supporting customers with reliable solutions,” summarises Max Wedekind. “Technically mature products and innovative offers covering a wide range of applications will continue to be essential for the development of DENSO in the future.”
