Azelis Americas Opens New Headquarters in Mexico City
15 June 2022
Azelis, a leading innovation service provider in the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry, announces the opening of its new Mexican headquarters in Mexico City today, underscoring the Group’s commitment to invest and grow its operations in Latin America.
This milestone represents the culmination of a series of major developments for Azelis in the Mexican market over the past years and further strengthens the footprint of Azelis Mexico, besides Monterrey, Merida, and Guadalajara.
The acquisition of Megafarma in January 2020, the launch of Azelis’ Regional Innovation Center in 2021, and the rebranding of the company to Azelis Mexico in early 2022, all paved the way to establishing new headquarters for Azelis Mexico. Located adjacent to Azelis’ five industry-specific application labs — with a sixth application lab for Construction expected to open in Q3 this year - the new headquarters will provide the foundation for growing the Mexico-based team and further expanding into Latin America.
The Mexican headquarters will house the leadership, marketing, and sales for all core market segments, including Personal Care and H&IC (homecare & industrial cleaning), CASE (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers), Rubber & Plastics Additives (RPA), Food & Nutrition, Pharma & Healthcare, and Animal Health to support growth in Mexico. The site will also host virtual and live customer seminars, interactive formulation workshops, customer technical training, as well as internal training for sales and support teams — all with the collaborative and innovative spirit that embodies the company, supporting all stages of the development process for its clients, from concept to final formulation.
Frank Bergonzi, Chief Executive Officer & President, Azelis Americas comments:
“The opening of our new offices, along with the Regional Innovation Center marks a milestone for Azelis in Latin America. Azelis will now be able to provide an unsurpassed level of service, technical support, and innovative solution for our customers. Our new state-of-the-art labs will deliver on our mission of ‘Innovation through formulation’ for our clients and principals.”
Eduardo Salinas, Managing Director, Azelis Latin America, states:
“The opening of our new headquarters underscores Azelis’ commitment to growing its leading position in providing specialty ingredients and innovative solutions in Mexico. Located adjacent to our state-of-the-art Regional Innovation Center and application labs, our new headquarters brings our sales, marketing, and technical experts under one roof. Collaboration between team members and with our customers and principals is a significant contributing factor to our success. The new headquarters and innovation center will further support our strategy.”
