Mayzo Inc. recently announced that it celebrated its 35th anniversary this year. In addition, the company has named Eduardo Padilla its new president and Garry Schoolcraft its vice president of Global Operations.

“On this occasion, I am filled with both pride in our past and anticipation of our team’s future achievements,” said Ben Milazzo, founder and chairman. “More than anything, I am grateful for the confidence and loyal partnership of our long-term customers. We are truly indebted to those who gave us our start and enabled us to become the global supplier of chemical additives we are today.”

According to Padilla, “What sets Mayzo apart from the customer view is our expertise and focus on specialty chemical additives, which are a vital ingredient in any modern manufacturing process. With our diverse capabilities, we are able to supply additives without interruption even during times of shortages, and innovate better ways for our customers to use these products.”

To meet the growing demand for additives, Mayzo recently opened an Operations Center in Walterboro, S.C. At over 61,000 square feet, the facility houses a warehouse, chemical laboratory, and production operations. The facility will enable the company to provide value-added services including repackaging, additive blending, and other customized solutions on both a small and large scale. The Operations Center has achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification.

With these personnel appointments, the company reports that its succession plan is complete. Padilla and Schoolcraft, joined by James H. Jones, chief financial officer, will manage the day-to-day business operations of Mayzo. Ben Milazzo remains as chairman of the board, and Valarie Milazzo is vice chairman.
