ACTEGA Consolidates In Brazil With New Managing Director

ACTEGA, manufacturer of specialty coatings, inks, adhesives, sealants and compounds for the printing and packaging industries, has consolidated its three Brazilian sites into a new 22,500-square-meter facility in Araçariguama, São Paulo. The production and R&D site is the result of a major investment of $7 million.

ACTEGA has appointed Ronaldo Begnossi as new Managing Director of ACTEGA do Brasil. Begnossi, an experienced industrial leader with a Chemical Production Engineering degree and an executive MBA in Industrial Management, has a career spanning 25 years and brings extensive strategic, managerial, and board experience to ACTEGA do Brazil.

In 2019, ACTEGA merged the administration, production, and R&D activities of its two Brazilian sites in Guarulhos and Barueri into the new site in Araçariguama. With an investment of around $2 million and a total area of 12,000 square meters at that time, the new location had explicitly invested in new high-performance dispersion units for the printing ink production and corresponding equipment for the production of water-based coatings. 

While the existing building was subsequently expanded once again to accommodate and strengthen the sealants business for two- and three-piece cans, ACTEGA’s third Brazilian site in Santana de Parnaíba has now also been integrated into the new location. This represents a capacity expansion of another 10,500 square meters. These additional investments account for $5 million.

The new overall site will serve as a hub for the company’s administrative, production and R&D activities.
