Minneapolis is now home to Alchem's first North American office.
India-based Alchem International Ltd. (Minneapolis) is settling into the North American market with the opening of its first sales and marketing office in Minneapolis. The office will be headed by Laurent Leduc, former Frutarom USA Inc. vice president.
“I’m very excited about opening Alchem’s first North American office and welcome the opportunity to offer to the supplement and cosmetic industries premium quality ingredients and formulatios supported by science,” says Leduc. “My role will be to introduce the region to Alchem and its potfolio of high-quality ingredients, and to increase service to our customers in North America.”
Alchem provides GMP extracts and their derivatives for dietary supplement, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical businesses. Its ingredient offerings include vinpocetine, forskolin, sennosides, and quinine. Leduc says his company is already seeing an increased demand for vinpocetine, which Alchem brought to the U.S. market in 2011.
