Oxea Lifts Force Majeure in Oberhausen, Germany

The chemical company Oxea has lifted its declaration of force majeure for 2-Ethylhexanol, n-Butyraldehyde Europe, and n-Butanol Europe.

The declaration of force majeure had become necessary because of an incident at an important raw material supplier at the Oberhausen site on February 21, 2020. As a result of this operational disruption, Oxea had to temporarily restrict supplies of certain products that the company manufactures in Oberhausen.
