Personal care ingredient distributor Azelis has opened its first office in Bangladesh.
The Dhaka establishment serves the pharma, food, agricultural, CASE and personal care markets, complementing its more than 30 offices across the region.
The firm said the new office will strengthen its footprint across the South Asian continent and provide additional solutions and expertise to customers.
“This new expansion brings Azelis closer to its customers in Bangladesh, deepening customer intimacy and supporting growth in Asia Pacific, while also enabling closer collaboration with partners and reducing complexity for their sales organization,” said an Azelis spokeswoman.
“As one of the fastest growing economies in the world, Bangladesh is an important hub that offers many new business opportunities in key markets across the life sciences and industrial chemicals industries,” she added.
Azelis India business manager Vivek Pandey has been appointed as country manager for Bangladesh, relocating to Dhaka with his family.
“Through our new Bangladesh office, we aim to support our existing principals by bringing their product portfolio to a larger audience, leading to new and untapped opportunities in a market with high potential,” he said.
“We will also be able to better support local customers directly, by bringing our sales capabilities, technical expertise and supply chain solutions closer to them, along with better sourcing and product availability, as we collaborate to develop solutions that meet their needs.”
