Company History

Our Polyester Division was established in 1978, followed by the Chemical Division in 1989. The Polyester production started in 1980 and in 1993, the Nylon and Ethylene Glycol plants were started-up. In 1998 the SBR plant was put on stream, followed by Ethoxylate in 1999.

In the same year 1999 we also expanded and constructed the biggest single-plot Polyester plant in Indonesia with a capacity of 300 ton per day, and also started our second Nylon plant.  

Our main priority is the quality of our products, process-licensed by leading world-class technologies namely Scientific Design Inc., USA for the production of Ethylene Oxide, Ethylene Glycol, and Ethoxylate; Zimmer AG, Germany for the Polyester and Nylon productions. Another leading world-class licensor, Nippon Zeon Co., Ltd. of Japan provided us with the license for SBR production.

Beside the aforementioned leading world-class licenses, we also use the world-class air separation technology from Linde AG, Germany, as well as from Chicago Bridge & Iron USA for the Ethylene Terminal Unit.

We enjoy a high reputation from our Customers and Business Partners. All these are sustained by the people who make up Polychem Indonesia and through the way these people interrelated and behave amongst themselves. We have very positive outlook and firm confidence in the continuing progress and prosperity of our country Indonesia, as well as a firm commitment to maintain and advance the growth in our activities to satisfy our customers, business partners, shareholders and employees.
