Evonik builds new plant to tap into the growing South American cosmetics market

Evonik’s new production facility for cosmetics and consumer goods in Brazil is expected to be operational in 2014. According to the German supplier of speciality chemicals, the plant will have a 50,000 tons per annum capacity and will create around 80 new jobs in Americana, in state of São Paulo, to produce a wide portfolio of substances, including specialty surfactants, conditioning agents, emollients, emulsifiers, thickeners and fabric softening actives amongst others.

The production facility in South America expands our global Consumer Specialties production network and gives us a better access to the growth markets in South America. We chose Americana for this project because of its proximity to most of the Brazilian customers in the relevant industries,” said Dr. Claus Rettig, who heads up the Consumer Specialties Business Unit.

Evonik already supplies customers in this region through its service and logistics centre in Guarulhos and has significantly increased its sales force capacities in the region in the last two years. The company also opened an application lab this year to provide technical support to its customers. Considering the rapid growth of the South American economy, Evonik plans to further step up these activities to prepare the ground for the inauguration of the plant in 2014.

In addition to this project, Evonik is currently building another production plant for ingredients for cosmetics and household consumer goods in Shanghai (China) to serve the Asian market.
