Celebrating 20years Anniversary
#20YEARSCHEMICALBONDING
1997 - 2017
Celebrating 20 years of chemical bonding

To celebrate our 20th anniversary Mercachem employees from The Netherlands and Prague gathered for a weekend of fun and celebration. After a fantastic day in the centre of Amsterdam, where a stolen Rembrandt was found back by some smart colleagues, we set sail to the sea port of IJmuiden. A fantastic evening at the harbour fortress and hotel bar made us all realize that we are ready for the next #20yearsofchemicalbonding.




Early morning at Mercachem: gathering all 165 colleagues for our 20th anniversary party weekend!

“Nori Morita, Director of Business Development, clearly showing his ambitions in the logistic department...”





Fascinating insights into the history of The Netherlands over a morning coffee.





Frank and Eelco unpacking our company present. Much to our surprise it was “stolen”. Time to find it back in the centre of Amsterdam!
