Who We Are

As one of the leading petrochemical companies in the Americas, Alpek is one of the largest integrated PTA and PET producers worldwide with an installed capacity of over 5.8 million tons.

Through strong leadership and a laser-focused vision, we continue to expand our portfolio of products across two primary segments through highly innovative technology, strategically located assets, and forward-looking market strategies — with both safety and environmental responsibility as guiding factors.

Alpek thrives while leading by example on recycling and sustainability efforts necessary for a healthy environment and is uniquely positioned as a primary participant in the circular economy. Alpek leads comprehensive efforts to foster a fully circular lifecycle for PET and the rest of its products.

Our consumer-oriented product portfolio is positioned for continued growth while limiting demand volatility and exceeding expectations for customers and investors alike. At Alpek, we believe that promoting an effective communications process with our stakeholders is key to building relationships of trust, mutual respect, and long-term collaboration.
