Specialty chemicals company Huntsman Corporation (The Woodlands, Texas) announced late last month that it is expanding its Polyurethanes division with the commercial registration of its business in Chile.

“The new facility will give Huntsman the ability to rapidly respond to customer requests with local product stocks from our warehouse in Santiago,” said Luis Mendonca, Director, Central and South America, Huntsman Polyurethanes. “From now on, our customers in Chile will be served by a local staff.”

Including the new activities, Huntsman now has South American polyurethanes operations in Cartagena and Bogota, Colombia; Santiago, Chile; São Paulo and Taboão da Serra, Brazil; and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Additionally, these locations are supported by a distribution network spread across seven other countries in the Central and South American region.

“The Huntsman Chile SpA site is further evidence of Huntsman's ever-growing commitment to the South American market,” said Peter Huntsman Jr., Sales Director, Latin America, Huntsman Corp.

“With this new site, we will be able to better serve our regional customers through innovative technologies; an improved supply chain; a commitment to product stewardship and local customer service. Chile is central to a young and growing region of South America. I am incredibly excited about this new step forward.”
