Our history dates back to 1924, when we were first founded as Elkasan, trading chemicals from reputable global sources.
Organik Kimya was founded in 1965 with the main focus on polymer emulsions and specialty chemicals.
Our first investment as Organik Kimya was a 6.000 tons capacity plant for polymer emulsions and textile auxiliaries . Over the years, with our ambition to grow and passion
for our business , our production capacity has undergone 5 expansions in the last 28 years, increasing over 30-fold, reaching 200.000 tons/year by 2007:
> 1978 6.000 tpa 42.000 tpa
> 2003 42.000 tpa 80.000 tpa
> 2007 120.000 tpa 200.000 tpa
> 2013 200.000 tpa 250.000 tpa
In addition to our Istanbul Plant, our plant in Rotterdam with a capacity of 80.000 tpa came onstream in 2007 enabling us to supply the western hemisphere from two key locations. Istanbul, being a very important location of economics and logistics is the base of operations. Rotterdam Plant, resides in the huge Botlek chemical complex on Rotterdam Harbor, right next to the largest bulk materials terminal in Rotterdam. Both plants are identical in the way they operate, enabling the production processes and quality assurance to be run and optimized simultaneously. The production is controlled by state-of-the-art DCS control systems. Fully automated operation ensures standard quality with every batch, regardless of the reactor or the location of the plant.
