Irving, Texas and São Paulo, Brazil – October 5, 2022 – Atos today announces it has been selected by Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited (IVL), a global sustainable chemical company, to implement the company’s first, cohesive digital operations that will bring together its Integrated Oxides and Derivatives (IOD) verticals across North and South America into a hybrid cloud environment.
