How a Portuguese company is cheating, learning and growing in the USA


A Colchemical, based in Valongo, decided to cross the Atlantic to invest 12 million dollars (12.3 million euros at current exchange rates) in a new factory, in the North American city of Charlotte, North Carolina. The unit started in the middle of the pandemic, but it is meeting all the objectives and there are already plans to expand the production lines of its glues.

“10 years ago we had occasional sales to the US. We got to know the market and the customers, we did our learning and we realized that offering a product manufactured locally was a condition of success with local buyers. That’s why we decided to invest”, comments to Expresso João Pedro Koehlerexecutive chairman of Colchemicalat the moment when the group’s factory in the USA officially opens.
