Clariant expands operations at Coatzacoalcos, Mexico plant
Since its opening in 2002, the Coatzacoalcos plant has expanded continuously over the last 15 years in order to support customers' growth.

MUTTENZ, SWITZERLAND: Clariant International Ltd said that it has completed the project to expand its industrial facility in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, and increased production capacity by around 15 percent.

This investment in the expansion of the plant was made to strengthen the group's ability to serve industrial and consumer markets - not only in Mexico but around the world, especially in the Americas.

The expansion project in Coatzacoalcos took approximately two years to complete, concluding within the planned timeframe and budget and with zero accidents. Included amongst the benefits it is bringing to the local communities is the creation of indirect service jobs in areas such as transportation and maintenance, among others.

Since its inaugural in 2002, the Coatzacoalcos plant has continuously been expanded over the last 15 years. It currently occupies an area of 76,000 square meters, has over 100 employees and manufactures a wide variety of Clariant products.

"To make progress on our way to becoming a leading speciality chemicals company, Clariant focuses on the allocation of investments in areas with excellent growth potential. One of these important strategic markets in the Americas is Mexico, particularly due to its growth potential, its export strength and our highly motivated and qualified workforce," said Hariolf Kottmann, CEO of Clariant.

"We have a strong presence in Mexico, with production plants, laboratories, and sales offices located in Santa Clara (Mexico state), Puebla, and Coatzacoalcos, which provides solutions to multiple industries and we continuously invest in new technologies to better meet the needs of our customers," added Fernando Hernandez, country head of Clariant Mexico.
