Company Launches

TLDR: Entvin is a digital platform that allows sourcing/procurement teams to find new chemical suppliers from Asia based on regulatory info, manufacturing capacity, etc. to diversify their global supply chains.


”Over 96% of all manufactured goods are directly touched by the business of chemistry” - American Chemistry Council
Chemicals play a pivotal role across various end-use sectors, including pharmaceuticals, agriculture, paint and coatings, animal nutrition, flavor and fragrances, personal care, and semiconductors, among others.

  • Global chemical cross-border trade amounts to $1,096 Bn, with the U.S. importing around $124 Bn. (11% growth rate)
  • The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted vulnerabilities in global chemical supply chains, necessitating diversification.
  • Evolving geopolitical dynamics in Asia require U.S. chemical firms to reduce risk in their global supply chains.
  • India, being one of the largest pharmaceutical producers, is rapidly expanding its chemical production capacity to meet this rising global demand.

😠 The Problem

Traditionally, sourcing teams have faced numerous challenges when seeking new suppliers for chemicals and pharmaceuticals. They often rely on time-consuming methods such as trade shows, personal networks, or Google searches.

  • There is a lack of a centralized and trustworthy source to validate Asian suppliers, making it difficult to distinguish between genuine manufacturers and traders.
  • The complexity of verifying technical details leads to dependency on intermediaries or traders, which can be costly and limit sourcing options.
  • Gathering essential supplier information, such as plant capacity, location, and financial data, has remained a persistent challenge.
  • The existing regulatory databases are fragmented and not always user-friendly.
  • Lack of actionable price information often makes negotiations with suppliers more challenging.
  • Decades-old database providers have failed to adapt to changing sourcing needs, leaving sourcing teams with outdated tools.

😎 The Solution

Entvin presents a comprehensive solution to these sourcing challenges. With a vast database comprising over 100k global chemical and pharmaceutical companies, Entvin offers crucial information, including plant capacity, revenue, end-use applications, contact details, and regulatory compliance data such as REACH, FDA, DMFs- all in one single dashboard.
