Change in market approach

CyPlus is proud to announce the finalization of the market ramp up in Mexico through its sales and distribution channel in Mexico so far separate from CyPlus Idesa. As a next step in organizational development the execution of sales and distribution of cyanides produced in Mexico for the precious metals mining industry is transferred to our Joint Venture CyPlus Idesa. With the move of your daily contacts for the countries Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama into this new organization we ensure the same high level of supply quality you have experienced with us in the last years. The transfer is subject to the time line for the announced changes in Evonik Industries - the sale of Evonik’s CyPlus business as part of the ‘Methacrylate-Verbund’ to Advent International - and the corresponding merger control.
