Since 1997, VINAVIL has been intensifying its drive towards internationalization by founding two companies to cover the North American markets: VINAVIL Corp.
(USA) in North America
, which has its headquarters in Deerfield Beach
(Florida) and a manufacturing plant in Chicago
, and VINAVIL Inc.
(Canada), which has a manufacturing plant and an R&D center in Laval
(Montreal). A joint venture was signed in 2001 (VINAVIL Egypt
), with a manufacturing plant near Suez
; MAPEI Group
acquired 100% of the company
with a view to further develop this important geographical area.
