The company IHC was founded in 1991 by Inge and Willi Hamacher as a brokerage company. Long years of experience in a responsible position in various small and large German chemical trading companies, with pioneering work since 1983 in China, led Willi Hamacher to use this basis for the foundation of the family business.

Soon the realization dawned that trading as practised as a broker did not meet the requirements of customers, nor could awaken their interest.

Four years later, the conversion into a partnership under the name IHC - IH took place. Chempharm, chemicals and hydrocolloids distributors. At the same time, an office was opened in China.

The first successes emerged through the import of chemical technical raw materials and thickening agents from two major producers in Asia, building a close personal bond with their families.

Thereafter, in 2002, the transformation into a limited liability company was absolutely necessary in the course of expansion and the resulting turnover increase.

Inge and Willi Hamacher hold the company's shares together as partners.
