New CEO at ASK Chemicals

ASK Chemicals appointed Frank Coenen as its CEO, succeeding Stefan Sommer in the role. Coenen most recently served as the CEO of Tessenderlo Group, a global, Belgian-listed specialty chemicals group.

ASK Chemicals also extended its appreciation to outgoing CEO Stefan Sommer for his leadership over the past four years. Sommer led many important accomplishments in that period, from the creation of ASK Chemicals as an independent business in 2010 to its successful sale to Rhône.

ASK Chemicals is one of the world’s largest suppliers of foundry chemicals, with a comprehensive product and service portfolio of binders, coatings, feeders, filters and release agents as well as metallurgical products including inoculants, Mg-treatment and inoculation wires, and master alloys for iron casting.
