COLUMBUS, OHIO — AB Enzymes will use Columbus as its North American headquarters in a move designed to strengthen the sales team and consolidate support functions in the region.

"The new location at the facilities of our sister company, Abitec Corp., will bring us a well-equipped office environment and proximity to all relevant supporting functions," said Joerg Koehler, newly appointed sales director for the Americas region. "With sales and sales support under one roof, we have laid the foundation for our plans for accelerated growth and superior customer service in the North American region."

AB Enzymes, based in Darmstadt, Germany, supplies its products to more than 50 countries. It is part of ABF Ingredients Group, a subsidiary of Associated British Foods.
