Since 1973 Megafarma has served all of Mexico in the food, pharma and veterinary markets. It is headquartered in Mexico City with two additional facilities in Guadalajara and Monterrey.
The deal ushers in Azelis' expansion into the Latin America region, thereby enabling Azelis to gain a strong position in the pharma and food segments in Mexico, as well as build into other market segments, such as plastics, foam, CASE, personal care, and household & industrial cleaning.
