Oxea Netherlands B.V. specializes in the production of so-called oxo products. These are chemical intermediates that serve as a component for the production of e.g., safety glass, coatings, cosmetics, ink, fuel, lubricants and pesticides.
The Amsterdam plant manufactures esters, chemical compounds that are formed by the reaction of an acid with an alcohol. Some esters have a typical odor, for which they are used in the production of perfumes. Esters can also be used in the production of solvents and polyester plastics. Oxea Nederland is part of the German company Oxea with offices in Germany, the US, Mexico and Southeast Asia.
