NatureWorks opens Asia Pacific headquarters in Bangkok

BANGKOK, THAILAND: NatureWorks has located its first Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Bangkok and has expanded its team of senior commercial, managerial and technical personnel to enhance support of Ingeo (NatureWorks’ trademarked brand name for a range of polylactid biopolymers) customers throughout the region and to expand business.

“In many parts of Asia, most notably China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan, as in North America and Europe, Ingeo is already helping brand owners lower the carbon footprint of their plastic and fibre products, while giving these same companies significantly improved material price stability. The opening of our first Asian headquarters is an important move as we add support for current customers and introduce Ingeo to many more,” said Marc Verbruggen, President and CEO, NatureWorks.

Rich Weber will serve as the new Asia Pacific commercial director, and Viboon Pungprasert is the new general manager of NatureWorks Asia Pacific Limited. Weber will lead existing Ingeo market development work throughout the region. He is also responsible for establishing and managing new distribution relationships in Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. He will coordinate Ingeo sales across segments and geographies and will set up commercial operations to support regional business development opportunities. NatureWorks has hired business development and technical personnel in Thailand, Hong Kong and Japan to increase support for customers and to further market development.
