The world’s largest producer and supplier of methanol to major international markets in North America, Asia Pacific, Europe and South America.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, Methanex currently operates production sites in Canada, Chile, Egypt, New Zealand and Trinidad and Tobago. We are growing our production base in the United States by relocating two methanol plants from Chile to Geismar, Louisiana. The first plant, Geismar 1 is targeted to be operational by the end of 2014, and the second plant, Geismar 2 is targeted to be operational by early 2016.
Our global operations are supported by an extensive global supply chain of terminals, storage facilities and the world’s largest dedicated fleet of methanol ocean tankers.
The Power of AgilityTM is our competitive advantage. It is how our global team of approximately 1,100 employees safely and reliably delivers on our brand promise everyday by quickly adapting and responding to our customers’ needs and creating and capitalizing on opportunities in the marketplace. At Methanex, Responsible Care is the foundation of everything we do and is a key element of our global culture.
