In 2014, the Indonesian palm oil producer Musim Mas Group invested 30 million euro in a new plant on the terrain of chemical company Dow: Maschem BV. Invest in Zeeland has supported the company, one of the world's largest palm oil producers, with the establishment in Zeeland.
Invest in Zeeland has facilitated the Musim Mas Group in the licensing process and by unveiling administrative networks. For example, various agreements were organized to get the CEOs and regional directors round te table and talk to each other.
"As an international investor, Musim Mas, headquartered in Singapore, has been able to make good use of the intermediary role of Invest in Zeeland. ‘The best way to describe this role is to compare it with a GPS: via the shortest route and without loss of time, Invest in Zeeland has always been able bring us into contact with local authorities and decision makers. As a result, an international investor feels welcome in the Netherlands and the Dutch administrative processes become clear", thus Plant Manager of Mascham B.V. Frank Breugelmans
