Christeyns, the leading European producer of hygiene chemicals, has acquired Eurosanex (Spain) in a move that consolidates its position in the professional hygiene sector. Eurosanex is a specialist manufacturer of products for professional hygiene, food and laundry, as well as personal hygiene. This new investment is part of Christeyns’ strategy to extend its activities in the professional hygiene market.

Eurosanex, which employs 30 people and realised a turnover of around €10 million in 2020, is based in Cheste, Valencia, and was founded in 1987. The company has a state-of-the-art factory and has developed a wide portfolio in which environmentally friendly cleaning and disinfection products stand out. Eurosanex has a wide network of customers located in more than 15 countries.

Eurosanex CEO Antonio Bartual acknowledges that with this acquisition the company has managed to give continuity to a project that started more than 30 years ago. "We have worked very hard since we founded the company and this has helped us to become part of the Christeyns family. Now, our entire team will have the opportunity to continue growing professionally with Christeyns, one of the market leaders in the professional hygiene sector.”

“With the acquisition of Eurosanex we are going to be more competitive” says Ramón Berto, general manager of Christeyns in Spain. “It consolidates ourselves in a definitive way in the professional hygiene sector, not only at a national level, but also beyond the Spanish borders."

Christeyns’ goal is to increase the turnover of the Professional Hygiene department from €65 million in 2020 to €120 million in 2023.

The entire Eurosanex team will join the Christeyns organisation in Spain, making it stronger, better positioned in the market and able to offer its comprehensive hygiene services.
