Crespel & Deiters Group opens subsidiary in Mexico

The Crespel & Deiters Group is expanding its activities in the South American corrugated market with its C&D Corrugating & Paper brand. Due to the high demand for environmentally friendly adhesives for the packaging industry, the company is complementing its existing distribution business with a local subsidiary: Crespel & Deiters Latin America, S. de R.L. de C.V., based in Mexico City, now offers corrugated board manufacturers comprehensive technical services and individual advice on product development. The company will be showcasing the capabilities of its new subsidiary for the first time at ACCCSA 2023 – a packaging materials trade fair in Monterrey, Mexico, from 17 to 19 October – at booth 116.

As one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of wheat starches and wheat proteins, family-owned Crespel & Deiters has succeeded in creating a unique value chain by turning raw materials into high quality functional ingredients for both food and non-food industries. Supply to the North and South American markets has been operational for many years now, but with the establishment of its new subsidiary, the company is able to better support product development and technical services closer to the customer.

Gustav Deiters, CEO of the Crespel & Deiters Group, explains: “Our vision is to develop solutions from wheat that make both the production and the corrugated board itself more environmentally friendly, efficient and of higher quality, so that our customers can do more with less. In this way, we can work together to conserve the resources of our planet. However, this endeavour can only be successful if we implement it globally. Our new subsidiary in Mexico is therefore hugely important and a big step towards an even more exciting future.”
