Coast Southwest Marks A Decade in Texas

April 8, 2013

Coast Southwest, Inc. is celebrating its 10th anniversary serving the personal care, surfactant and silicone markets in Texas.

“Grand Prairie is the first branch we opened outside of California,” said Joseph C. Cimo, Coast Southwest president. “In the decade since we acquired Southwest Silicones, Coast Southwest has grown from a small operation to a dynamic, regional distribution hub that includes senior industry leaders who work directly with customers to develop and deliver unique ingredient concepts. Our growth in Texas has been phenomenal and plans are underway for an even more exciting future.”

Coast Southwest has recently acquired a new 30,000 square foot facility in Arlington, TX. The new site will house local customer service, a regional sales office, warehousing, and an innovation center for the application of cutting-edge personal care ingredient technology. This Arlington location is situated on a 1.8-acre rail-served parcel, which will allow for even further expansion including liquid bulk storage, packaging and blending.

Coast Southwest’s Grand Prairie-based personal care industry team applies its expert knowledge of cosmetic science, specialty raw materials and consumer market trends to help customers create new products and improve existing formulas, especially in the categories of anti-aging, sun care and color.

“Our commitment is to help our customers grow their businesses through innovative products from world-class manufacturers,” said Lisa M. Jones, general manager.
