Our new name
Our new name is inspired by two of our company’s many pioneers, Jan Nourij and Gerrit van der Lande. In 1838, they bought two mills in the Netherlands to produce oil and flour. The discovery that oxidized flour made better bread sparked the transformation of their humble grain milling business into an international chemicals company and safety leader. Their pioneering spirit continues to inspire us to be a leader that can shape an industry.
