ST. LOUIS, March 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sigma-Aldrich (Nasdaq: SIAL) today announced that it has expanded its presence in the Republic of Chile to directly serve research and manufacturing customers throughout the country. The Company has acquired Sigal Ltda, its primary distributor in Chile, and established Sigma-Aldrich Quimica Ltda to provide a foundation for future growth in the country.

"Building on our strong customer base in Chile and throughout Latin America is a long-term strategy for Sigma-Aldrich," said Eric Green, Vice President of International Sales and Operations. "We experienced 20% sales growth in Latin America in 2008 alone, and we believe our expanded presence in Chile, which will integrate sales, marketing and distribution, provides a solid base for consistent growth in the years to come."

Sigma-Aldrich's expansion of operations in Chile is part of the Company's strategic plan to accelerate growth in Canada, Asia Pacific and Latin America (CAPLA) to 25% of corporate sales by 2010. In line with this strategy, in October 2008 Sigma-Aldrich established a representative office in Vietnam to serve the country's expanding research and manufacturing sectors.

Santiago-based Sigal Ltda was established in 1997 to supply research products to customers in Chile. Its General Manager, Patricia Bravo, will become Sigma-Aldrich's Sales and Marketing Manager for Chile. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
