Jowat AG is expanding worldwide with Jowat Corporation establishing subsidiaries in strategic regions of South America. Subsidiaries were set up in Mexico and Brazil in 2000 and 2003, and now in Columbia and Chile during 2014. Managing Director for the Jowat subsidiaries in Columbia and Chile—Marco Kubitza—summarized, “In South America, we are seeing prospering economies with growth rates above international averages, and in consequence an increased demand for innovative industrial adhesives. We have the capacities, the right products, and can supply these markets via our US-American affiliation from its location in North Carolina, without any complicated logistics.” The Jowat Corporation headquarters in North Carolina is the production site for both continents. It is the largest Jowat production site for hot melt adhesives, due in large part to exports to South America. Now the NC plant will directly serve Columbia and Chile.
