Safic-Alcan enters South America with Brazil acquisitions

French speciality chemicals distributor Safic-Alcan has established a new Brazil business unit and acquired a pair of local companies.

The Paris company has acquired 100% of Proquimil Produtos Químicos, a Brazilian chemical distributor specialising in rubber and plastic polymers and additives.

The integration will be led by Luiz Maranho, a seasoned Brazilian executive in the chemical distribution sector, who recently joined Safic-Alcan to become general manager of newly-established Safic-Alcan Brasil.

Established over 40 years ago by Oswaldo Ruffo, Sao Paulo-based Proquimil has established itself as a recognised leader in the field of rubber and plastic distribution.

In a related development, Safic-Alcan has acquired 100% of Sarfam, a Brazilian chemical distributor specializing in the personal care, perfumery and cosmetics sectors.

Established 25 years ago by Maria Antonia Salerno, Sao Paulo-based Sarfam has a national presence in the Brazilian market, with application laboratory facilities.

“With the recent establishment of Safic-Alcan Brasil and the acquisition of Proquimil, the addition of Sarfam into the group presents great further diversification and many synergetic opportunities, especially in relation to key supplier relationships,” said Safic-Alcan group chief executive Yann Lissillour.
