QUERETARO, Mexico -- Rohm and Haas Company began operations at its new high technology plant in Querétaro, Mexico that will produce emulsion polymers and polyacrylates.
The plant is the company’s first in Latin America to operate under its 21st Century Manufacturing principles guaranteeing best standard levels of efficiency and productivity.
The main goal of Rohm and Haas with this investment is to develop a high performance center of technology and services, by increasing its presence in Mexico, Andean Countries, Central America and the Caribbean.
“With this action in Querétaro, we welcome this new production and distribution platform for our products. This gives the best attention to our customers in Mexico and Latin America. At the same time we will satisfy customer needs more efficiently by transferring the production we had in Apizaco plant to Querétaro,” said Mauro Trevisani, Rohm and Haas Mexico Country Manager.
Mexico represents one of the largest economies in Latin America and is a priority marketplace for Rohm and Haas. The company expects growth between 10 and 15 percent in the region.
