Chemical Distribution and Trading

Cooperation and communication are needed for free international trade, fair business practices and responsible stewardship of products and distribution systems.

Fortunately, that new technology, coupled with excellent thinking skills, can mean prosperity, security and quality for manufacturers, distributors and customers alike.

Needed skills include both scientific/technological knowledge and the ability to work with diverse groups, initiate improvements and ensure reliable, safe practices in trading and distribution. Ropella’s long involvement in science, technology and applied fields will enable us to quickly identify people who will be the best choices for these challenging missions.
