Braskem opens office in Singapore

Company installs an office in Singapore to be closer to its clients and prospect new opportunities in the Asia region.

In May, Braskem will take an important step forward in supporting its presence in Asia. The company will inaugurate its first office in this region.

The unit inaugurated on May 18 in Singapore, which is Asia’s commercial operations and most important logistics centre. According to Rodrigo Carnaúba, who is head of international business in the Basic Petrochemicals segment at Braskem, the choice of Singapore was also influenced by the strong support from the local government for the installation of international companies and by the easier adaptation of foreigners.

The new office will enable Braskem to provide more personal service to its clients in the region, which are located in Singapore, China, India, Indonesia, Korea and Japan. “Having a physical presence in Asia will allow us to get to know the players in the region better and to learn more about the dynamics of the local market, while also helping us identify opportunities for Braskem’s future growth,” said Carnaúba.

Braskem has been expanding its physical presence in the international market since 2002, when it opened its first office in Argentina. Since then it has also opened offices in the United States, Holland, Chile, Venezuela and Colombia.
