BRAMPTON, Ontario—Zochem Inc., a producer of zinc oxide, plans to increase its existing presence in global markets in 2016.
Zochem said it will further expand its capabilities to service customers and manage relationships directly as well as via strategic regional distributors through a warehouse/distribution center soon to be opened in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
This expansion comes on the heels of the company's recent investments to optimize production capacity, improve operational efficiency and implement systems to achieve industry-leading customer service and logistics.
“In terms of timing, we intend to capitalize on the momentum of our recent internal execution as well as tailwinds from several external factors,” Joshua Belczyk, Zochem general manager, said in a news release.
“As in other industries, the global growth slowdown is threatening the viability of smaller, less efficient producers. Zochem, however, is poised to continue to excel in all areas by building on existing relationships, superior economies of scale and product purity, our highly skilled team of employees, industry-leading strategy and execution, and a strong balance sheet. ”
