Evonik is planning to build a cosmetic and consumer good ingredient production facility in São Paulo. Production capacity in the new facility will exceed 25,000 metric tons, and the facility is scheduled to open in early 2014.
Evonik currently supplies customers in this region through its service and logistics center in Guarulhos, Brazil. The company also plans to step up these activities in the future. According to the company, the new facility will improve its ability to serve the cosmetic market in Brazil and South America.
Evonik has production facilities for cosmetic ingredients in Europe, the United States and Asia. The company also is planning a further production plant for cosmetic and household ingredients in Shanghai.
