Clariant has inaugurated a new production site for its Industrial & Consumer Specialties Business Unit (ICS), at the city of Coatzacoalcos, Mexico. Hariolf Kottmann, Clariant CEO, was present on-site to start its operations and to reassure the commitment of the company to the industrial community in Mexico and Latin America: "With the opening of this site in Coatzacoalcos, Clariant will strengthen the competitive solutions for which we are known by our clients around the world. Mexico is a key player for our operations in Latin America, and this site will be an important reference for the international standards of innovation, sustainability and competitiveness that we want to consolidate within the region”, commented Hariolf Kottmann.

With an investment of over USD 20 million and an extension of four hectares, the company’s new site in Mexico will produce several chemical specialties and technological solutions for different markets, including personal care, crop protection, metalworking, construction and painting. "We chose Coatzacoalcos as the best location for this new site in order to integrate the operations of our ICS business unit in one place, taking into account its strategic geographical position, in between the two sites producing raw materials in the country” mentioned Michael Willome, Global Head of Business Unit ICS.
