A new headquarter has opened in Sao Paolo, Brazil and will serve as a springboard for incrementing the sales in such a fast pace growing market. The reinforcement of the South American market also comes from the recent acquisition of Adec, an Argentinian supplier of technical solutions for packaging.
Asia represents another important opportunity for Coesia. Before the end of 2014, the Group aims at opening a new factory in Jakarta, Indonesia. The plant will also have commercial offices, where forty employees will work. With the new opening, Coesia's presence in Asia will amount to 800 squared meters. In September, they expect to finish the on-going works for the opening of a new headquarter in Suzhou, China, which will cover a total surface of twenty thousand squared meters. Other investment projects in Asia include strengthening their presence in South Korea and Japan, where already 70 employees are working.
