Clariant expands operations in Mexico
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 especially in the Americas.
Hariolf Kottmann, CEO of Clariant, said: “Clariant focuses on the allocation of investments in areas with growth potential. One of these markets in the Americas is Mexico, particularly due to its growth potential, its export strength and our highly motivated and qualified workforce”.
The expansion project in Coatzacoalcos took approximately two years to complete, concluding within the planned timeframe and budget.
Since its opening 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.
