"CES has prepared for this transition by building a group of world class scientists and production chemical business leaders. We are honoured to take JACAM forward in Dr. Zaid's legacy. Going forward our US production and specialty chemical business will be led by Mr. Vern Disney who joined CES as part of the Catalyst acquisition in August 2016. The combination of JACAM and Catalyst positions us as a leading US production and specialty chemical company."
