The Latin America countries offer great potential for our oleochemical additives. As part of our global growth strategy, we have therefore decided to work more actively in future, in the Latin American market and to expand both our market share and our market presence. For this purpose, we have appointed Mr. Daniel Ahrendt from 01.03.2015 as our representative for Latin America. Mr. Ahrendt worked for many years for the Brenntag Group in a number of managerial positions, with a particular focus on Latin America. In addition to optimising our distribution channels, Mr. Ahrendt will develop the market locally and continue to expand our market share, so that, in the future, we are able to utilise the potential of this exciting growth market, to the greatest extent.
