Celanese opens research and development centre in Mexico

DALLAS, US/MEXICO CITY, MEXICO: Celanese Corporation said it opened its commercial and technology centre – Mexico, in the region of Queretaro, to serve the expanding central and south American customer base. The new centre will support the automotive, consumer electronics, appliance, medical device, petrochemical and aerospace industries, as well as original equipment manufacturers and their tier suppliers.

The centre will work directly with manufacturers interested in product innovations in the growing markets of engineering polymers, food ingredients, adhesives, paints and coatings and consumer goods. These customers will have greater access to a diverse product and solution portfolio of engineered materials and intermediate chemicals, along with the technologists’ support and technical expertise.

“Our customers in Mexico are helping to develop the products of tomorrow, and Mexico continues to be a hub for innovative manufacturers across many industries because of its compelling combination of knowledgeable people, efficient operations and logistical options,” said Todd Elliott, vice president and general manager, Global Sales Materials Solutions.

“Many of our customers seek the technical support and training for engineered materials in the Celanese portfolio. This centre will be their resource for world-class instruction and product development support,” said Haydee Villasenor, regional commercial manager, Celanese.

“We will help customers in Latin America who support automotive tier suppliers and OEMs in the region to produce vehicles that are lighter, safer and more affordable using the design freedom of Celanese engineered materials. Our teams will collaborate with customers to quickly design, develop and launch differentiated, competitive automotive products that solve their most critical business needs,” said Stefan Kutta, global automotive industry director, Celanese.

The R&D centre will provide customers in Latin America with training in plastics and polymer technology; plastics design, moulding and colour; and technical and processing support, it said.
