AOC has strengthened its North American resin position by obtaining the majority interest in Mexicana de Resinas, part of AOC’s former 50-50 joint venture in Mexico.
The new company is named AOC Mexico and includes the resin manufacturing facility in the municipality of Nezahualcóyotl in the Mexico City Metropolitan Area.
For AOC Mexico products that are marketed through distribution in Mexico, Poliformas Plásticas, S.A. de C.V. will be the recognized distributor.
Brian Parker has been appointed Managing Director-Latin America for AOC. “We will continue to improve the technology, quality and service that established the joint venture as the leading supplier of composite resins in Mexico,” Parker says. “Major markets benefiting from AOC’s commitment to Latin America include marine, transportation, alternative energy, pultrusion and compounding.”
Ing. José Antonio Gómez Rosillo, the other partner in AOC Mexico, is the principal owner of Poliformas Plásticas. “AOC is grateful to be associated with Mister Gómez Rosillo, a true leader in the creation and development of the Mexican composites industry,” Parker says. “Because of his hard work, dedication and vision, AOC Mexico has been formed on an excellent foundation.”
