Kemin Industries, an ingredient manufacturing company that works with private brands, has opened new offices and a distribution center in Mexico. The new facility will help boost operations in Mexico and Central America.

The 36,000-square-foot building in Guadalajara, Jalisco has 5,800 square feet of office space that can accommodate up to 40 team members and includes conference rooms that will allow Kemin customers, stakeholders, and partners to collaborate at the facility.  The new product distribution warehouse can hold more than 1,000 metric tons of product and features a dedicated Kemin Application Solutions (KAS) area to build, pilot, and demonstrate customer-tailored systems for “optimal product application.”

"Our new, enhanced facilities greatly support our long-term business goals and will uniquely position Kemin within Mexico and Central America," said Alejandro Romero, a newly hired Country Manager for Kemin Mexico who leads the sales team. "These new facilities are just one of many ways Kemin is investing in this market to continue to provide the highest-quality services and personalized solutions to our customers."

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Tuesday, May 17, which included Kemin's worldwide executive team and members of the Nelson family who founded Kemin in 1961, Libby Nelson and Kimberly Nelson.

"The Kemin Mexico team is excited about the opportunity to expand our footprint, grow our team and offer more solution-oriented products to our customers in the Mexico and Central America regions," said recently promoted Operations Manager, Guillermo Garcia.  

Established in 1961, Kemin is a privately held, family-owned-and-operated company with more than 3,000 global employees and operations in 90 countries, including manufacturing facilities in Belgium, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Italy, Russia, San Marino, Singapore, South Africa and the U.S.
