New company name: Resonac Europe GmbH

Munich, 25. October 2022


Dear valued Business Partner,


we would like to inform you that Showa Denko Europe GmbH has changed its company name to 


Resonac Europe GmbH.


Please note that we will adjust our billing information accordingly. If you provide services to us, please change the company name accordingly in your invoices.


Our products and your contact persons will continue to be available to you as before. The change of our external appearance as well as letterheads and email addresses will take some time but is expected to be completed by the beginning of next year.


The background to the name change is the global merger of the Showa Denko Group (headquartered in Japan) with Showa Denko Materials (formerly Hitachi Chemicals, also headquartered in Japan), which was acquired by the Showa Denko Group on April 28, 2020. Upon completion of the integration, the entire group will change its name to “Resonac Corporation” early next year and use new brand names accordingly. During the transition period, the Showa Denko logos and brand names will continue to be used.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Any further changes will of course be communicated to you in a timely manner.


Yours sincerely,

Takashi Kotsuka
