Cognis Opens New Zealand Office

Germany-based specialty chemicals supplier Cognis GmbH recently opened a branch office in Auckland, New Zealand. The office will be responsible for marketing and selling products directly in New Zealand for all three Cognis strategic business units (SBUs) - Care Chemicals, Nutrition and Health, and Functional Products. Cognis has appointed a market segment manager for each SBU in New Zealand: Peter Gibson will manage the Care Chemicals product line; Vinod Sareen will be responsible for Functional Products; and Domnic Lobo will handle Nutrition and Health.

"The new branch office in New Zealand will help us to understand the local market even better, and anticipate developments there at an earlier stage," said Roger Taylor, Cognis' legal representative for Australia, also responsible for the company's New Zealand operation. "A local presence will further strengthen our customers' trust in us, and help us give them the competitive edge they need to succeed. We see a significant opportunity to profitably grow our existing business plus develop new business, and by taking direct control of sales and distribution, we hope to exploit this."
