In 2013, IMCD made the strategic acquisition of Makeni Chemicals with the aim of establishing a position in one of the largest consumer markets in the world. In 2015, IMCD acquired Selectchemie, a major distributor of active pharmaceutical ingredients and excipients. With 77 years of combined experience, knowledge and local expertise, these companies provided a platform for IMCD to become one of the leading speciality chemical distributors in Brazil.
Headquartered in São Paulo, IMCD Brasil also has an office in Recife/PE, as well as two warehouses in the state capital (one exclusively dedicated to pharmaceutical ingredients) and another in the Northeast state of Pernambuco. We represent the leading international manufacturers in all market sectors including Coatings & Construction, Lubricants, Plastics & Rubber, Food & Nutrition, Pharmaceuticals, Home Care and I & I, Personal Care and Synthesis & Other Specialities.

To facilitate this, IMCD Brasil operates three application and formulation labs in the region – one for Coatings, one for Food & Nutrition and one for Personal Care. IMCD Brasil also has a sensory analysis lab with a dedicated fractionation and packaging room that has been audited by ANVISA.
