CINCINNATI – Specialty chemical distributor Azelis has opened a new, state-of-the-art, US CASE headquarters office in Cincinnati. The 13,000-square-foot office serves as both the CASE US headquarters and the GMZ, an Azelis company, corporate office.

As the CASE market segment continues to grow for Azelis, this new office will house more than 40 Azelis/GMZ employees, and was designed to accommodate continued growth plans. Frank Bergonzi, Azelis CEO and President, Americas, commented, "The opening of our new US CASE headquarters is an important milestone for us as we continue our evolution and maturation as the market-leading specialty chemical distributor.  This location, along with Ribelin’s corporate office in Garland, Texas, will service as Azelis CASE centers of excellence and are designed to encourage employee engagement, collaboration and productivity.”

The new facility is home for the Azelis CASE US leadership team led by Dan Gruber, Managing Director, and the CASE supply chain team. Gruber explained, “Our overall commitment and growth in this sector warranted expanding resources. The new CASE headquarters will allow us to have a more centralized and efficient supplier experience.”

Tom Wells, General Manager, GMZ, elaborated, “GMZ has been rapidly growing as a result of collaborating with our principals to provide the leading portfolio of products, as well as executing on our corporate strategy of providing unparalleled customer and technical support to our more than 2,000 customers to help them win and grow in their markets. All of our employees are very excited about the new office, as we had outgrown our previous space. This new facility affords us the ability to continue to expand and will enhance our ability to attract top-notch talent, ultimately for the benefit of our customers and principals.”

Guests and dignitaries joined Azelis and GMZ executives and staff for a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony at the new headquarters, which is located at 225 Pictoria Dr., Cincinnati.
