September 16, 2008
Capelle aan den IJssel, the Netherlands – In order to improve its service to a growing customer base in the Russian Federation and the other CIS countries, Eastman Chemical B.V. has opened a Representative Office in Moscow, Russian Federation. The company’s regional customer base is continuously expanding, represented by both local and international companies.
"Eastman has been active in Russia for several years, and the establishment of this office is a part of our continuing growth initiative,” says Godefroy Motte, Managing Director of the EMEA Region for Eastman. “We find the best way to commit to the Russian market is by serving our customers from inside the region rather than from outside.”
“This is an expansive and economically fast-growing region, and we are now much better equipped to effectively supply the region with products, as well as highly localized technical and logistical solutions,” said Andrey Prikazchikov, Business Development Manager for Russia and the Ukraine.
