The facility is located close to Mexico City and has over 50,000 metric tons of capacity, 124,000 square feet of warehouse space, a large laboratory and office space.

Growth in functional markets

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2017 and is expected to have minimal impact on Stepan's 2017 financial results. Financial terms were not disclosed. "The acquisition supports the company's growth strategy in Latin America. We believe this acquisition significantly enhances Stepan's market position and supply capabilities for surfactants in Mexico and positions us to grow in both the consumer and functional markets for surfactants," said F. Quinn Stepan Jr., Chairman, President and CEO of Stepan Company.
