“Mexico is an important market for us and the Los Reyes site serves as an efficient platform to further develop our global leadership position in organic peroxides,” said Werner Fuhrmann, AkzoNobel Executive Committee member for Specialty Chemicals. “This is a strategic investment, which will enable us to better satisfy growing demand for our products.”
The opening was formally dedicated at a ceremony today by AkzoNobel’s CFO, Maëlys Castella and
Johan Landfors, Managing Director of the company’s Polymer Chemistry business.
Landfors says he is proud of the organization’s heritage in Los Reyes. “This expansion is testament to our company’s commitment to grow with our customers and markets. We also have plans to continue investing in our North American plants over the next five years in order to better serve our key customers in the region and globally.”
