The TER GROUP’s business success is an interaction of several key factors that includes: providing customer satisfaction through the provision of high quality products certified to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008, HACCP, FAMI-QS and RESPONSIBLE CARE and supported with knowledgeable and experienced employees; the ability to operate both locally and internationally, guaranteeing cost efficient and punctual deliveries; financial independence to maintain operational flexibility, and working with highly reputable suppliers with many of whom we have a long-standing relationship.

We are proud of our long tradition and experience, but our focus is very much on the future. We continue to adapt our product range to meet the needs of our customers as well as advancing our international operations to strengthen our Pan-European network and our presence globally. By developing our position as a major distribution business we will become one of the top 5 specialty chemical distribution organisations in Europe.
