The Woodlands, Texas – Huntsman's polyurethanes division is to expand its footprint in South America, with the commercial registration of a business in Chile.
Huntsman (Chile) is based in Santiago de Chile. It will enable polyurethane customers to source materials and service from a local warehouse and customer service centre.
‘The new facility will give Huntsman the ability to rapidly respond to customer requests with local product stocks from our warehouse in Santiago,' says Luis Mendonca, director for Central and South America at the firm. ‘From now on, our customers in Chile will be served by a local staff.’
The company now has polyurethanes operations in four South American countries. The Santiago site joins Cartagena and Bogota in Colombia, Sao Paulo and Taboao da Serra in Brazil, and Buenos Aires in Argentina.
