Methanex has operated in Chile for 30 years, building a strong reputation nationally as an employer of choice.

Our sales office in Chile’s capital, Santiago, is located in Las Condes, an important commercial district in the city.

Methanex’s production facilities are located in Punta Arenas, a city in the south of the country in the Chilean Patagonia. Punta Arenas is known for its safety and low unemployment rates. Nearby ski areas are popular in the winter, and outdoor enthusiasts also enjoy Punta Arenas’ proximity to Torres del Paine Park, the newly elected eighth wonder of the world.
