NatureWorks opens Asia-Pacific headquarters

Monday, 04 February, 2013


NatureWorks will open its first Asia-Pacific regional headquarters in Bangkok and expand its team of senior commercial, managerial and technical personnel to enhance support of its Ingeo customers throughout the region and to expand business.

“In many parts of Asia, most notably China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan, as in North America and Europe, Ingeo is already helping brand owners lower the carbon footprint of their plastic and fibre products, while giving these same companies significantly improved material price stability,” said Marc Verbruggen, president and CEO, NatureWorks.

“The opening of our first Asian headquarters is an important move as we add support for current customers and introduce Ingeo to many more.”

Rich Weber will serve as the new Asia-Pacific commercial director and Viboon Pungprasert is the new general manager of NatureWorks Asia Pacific Limited.

NatureWorks has hired business development and technical personnel in Thailand, Hong Kong and Japan to increase support for customers and to further market development.

Chi Au-Yeung is NatureWorks’ new technology and business development specialist for the Asia-Pacific region. Pauline Ning is transitioning to regional Ingeo marketing and communications manager for Asia-Pacific. Kasina Samdaengdech is the new business development manager for Thailand and Vietnam, and Toshiaki Yamamatsu is now Ingeo technical sales development specialist for Japan.

Ingeo fibres and plastics are made from plant material, rather than oil.
