Emerald Kalama Chemical, a business group of Emerald Performance Materials, recently celebrated the grand opening of a new office in Rotterdam that will serve as the company’s central hub for European operations. Among other functions, the office will house Emerald’s growing team for order fulfillment and technical service, focused on serving customers worldwide for products manufactured at Emerald’s operations in Europe.

“As we continue to grow as a global organization, we realized the need for a centralized EMEA hub that will create alignment with our global headquarters in Vancouver,” said Ed Gotch, CEO. “Our new European Central Office will help us to ensure continuity and excellent service for our customers, as well as provide space for the growth of our team.”

Emerald reports that it already has a major stake in the Rotterdam region, with its manufacturing facility located in Rotterdam Botlek. As a result, the new office in Rotterdam provides a strategic location that is also convenient to one of the company’s key European manufacturing operations. Emerald has executed a number of capacity and product line expansions at the Rotterdam Botlek site over the last decade. The company also has a European operation in Widnes, UK, which has undergone recent expansions to increase production and add new chemistries.
