Tammo Boinowitz, senior vice president and general manager of the comfort & insulation business line at Essen, Germany-based Evonik, added: "The basis for a lasting relationship between Evonik and its customers is transparency at all stakeholder levels. Therefore we encourage our customers to purchase only from official sales channels."
