PARIS – Safic-Alcan has formed a new subsidiary, Safic-Alcan Magyarország Kft., which will serve the Hungarian industrial manufacturing sector starting in November 2016.

Safic-Alcan Magyarország Kft. is based near Budapest. The new subsidiary will develop Safic-Alcan’s business focusing on rubber, adhesives and other performance products while providing sales and technical support to the Hungarian market.

Safic-alcan Magyarország will be managed by Kamil Antos, head of Safic-Alcan Česko, a subsidiary of the Safic-Alcan Group and parent company of Safic-Alcan Magyarország Kft.

In order to support this new office, Safic-Alcan simultaneously hired its first employee, Tibor Varga, who will be responsible for Performance Products Sales & Development. He will work with Safic-Alcan Česko.

Tibor has more than six years work experience at a major international full-line chemical distributor in Hungary, with international project leader responsibilities. He worked two years for a leading lime producer in Hungary. These positions have given him in-depth experience in technical management and business and sales management.

Safic-Alcan’s CEO Philippe Combette commented, “This move aligns with our overall strategy to expand in countries where high demand is forecast and maintain long-term development while responding to market trends, allowing to better service our customer-base.”
