Firmly focussed on the goal
The development and production of the new products starts with plenty of enthusiasm. However, as good as the idea might be, the realisation turns out to be somewhat more challenging. The Raiso procedure fails to provide the desired quality with the produced cationic wheat starch. Sales, which have only just started, grind to a sudden halt, driving DEFIN GmbH to the verge of insolvency. Yet Crespel & Deiters has faith in the new product. The specialist for wheat starch starts developing additional application areas for native wheat starch products by itself. At this time, the German-Finnish partners have long since drifted far apart due to different objectives and solution approaches. After seven years of cooperation, the joint venture ends in 1986, and Crespel & Deiters takes over all of Raiso’s shares.
