Buckman has launched Buckman North America, a new organisation that “focuses on maximum efficiency” across Canada and the USA.

The current Buckman Canada and Buckman United States organisations will be brought together into a single operation.

It has begun operating immediately and will be based out of the Buckman global headquarters in Memphis.

The company will also maintain operations at the current Buckman Canada location in Vaudreuil-Dorion, a suburb of Montreal.

Jim Doan will serve as president of Buckman North America, and Pete Tchouros will serve as general manager operations for the new company.

Doan said: “When fully operational, this new Buckman North America structure will give Buckman associates in Canada and the United States increased access to technical knowledge, encourage sharing of best practices and enhance abilities to serve our customers.”

Buckman is a privately held, global specialty chemical company with headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee, USA.
