TRUST AND ETHICS
CHIMCOMPLEX was founded in Borzesti, Onesti, Bacau County.
In Râmnicu Vâlcea, was established in 1966 SC OLTCHIM SA under the name of Râmnicu Vâlcea Chemical Plant.
In the two industrial platforms, the needed installations were put into operation for chlorosodium products, oxo alcohols, vinyl chloride, polyvinyl chloride and HCH lindane, all based on foreign licenses.
At Oltchim takes place the development of the production profile from the first stage. New production capacities are put into operation and the product range is diversified with chlorinated solvents, propylene oxide, propylene glycols, polyethers, polyols, phosgene;
At Oltchim, new capacities were put into operation for organic intermediates (amines, chloroformates) and a wide range of pesticides.
The Borzesti Chemical Plant was organized as a joint-stock company.
Since its establishment, successive investments in production have taken place: electrolysis, inorganic chlorides, solvents, PVC, alkylamines, pesticides.
Chimcomplex enters the Trade Register as a joint-stock company with the majority state capital.
The products portfolio has been diversified on both platforms, over 40 basic products in over 78 assortments were developed. Thus we have been producing PVC, polyol polyether, plasticizers, pesticide formulas and formulas for processing plastic materials.
In 1997 Oltchim is listed on the capital market in the first category of the Bucharest Stock Exchange.
Meant the fulfillment of some strategic objectives for the development of Oltchim: modernizations (oxo-alcohols installation, ion exchange membrane electrolysis), commissioning of new installations (caustic soda flakes and pearls, phthalic anhydride, dioctyl phthalate, water demineralization, waste incineration) ) and capacity expansions to existing facilities (propene oxide, flexible polyols, PVC).
The company was privatized by Ștefan Vuza a Romanian entrepreneur.
At Oltchim, capacity modernizations and extensions were carried out at the existing technological installations: propene oxide, polyol-polyethers, PVC and a new waste incineration plant were put into operation, as well as an industrial lime plant. In 2010 the turnover decreases due to the lack of ethylene – the main raw material used in the production process.
Oltchim goes into insolvency;
In December, Chimcomplex completed the acquisition of the main assets of Oltchim SA Ramnicu Valcea. By acquiring these assets, Chimcomplex has strengthened its position as a producer and supplier of chemicals in Europe.
Chimcomplex is a consolidated, stable company with major growth potential and a market value of over 1.6 billion euros, taking into account the multiples of EBITDA in the chemical industry.
Chimcomplex achieved all its goals, including financial ones, but the path was very different from how it was planned. The company had taken decisive actions and had shown a lot of resilience. At the same time, we encouraged employees, focusing on customer needs and supporting its communities. Chimcomplex closed the year with a stronger balance sheet, ready to accelerate its strategy and realize bold plans for the future.
