POLİSAN KİMYA SANAYİİ A.Ş.
POLİSAN KİMYA IS ONE OF THE PIONEERS AND LEADING MANUFACTURERS OF THE TURKISH CHEMICALS INDUSTRY.
The Bitlis Family was the first to introduce the technology to produce chip board, MDF, plywood, Formica resins, fiber glass and rock wool resins, melamine, urea, and phenol formaldehyde resins in Turkey. Polisan Kimya’s first facility was established in Kağıthane in 1968. In 1977, Polisan Kimya relocated its facilities operating in Kağıthane to Dilovası where it still carries out its activities today, due to the need for increased capacity and convenient access to raw material sources. Polisan Kimya, which relocated to its Dilovası facility equipped with the latest technology, has become the market leader by following innovation in resin production simultaneously with the world since its inception. Over time, Polisan Kimya expanded its product range to construction chemicals for use in concrete and cement production, and with Adblue for use in diesel vehicles.
In 2009, Polisan Holding established Polisan Yapı Kimyasalları A.Ș. in order to carry out the sales and marketing of construction chemicals produced by Polisan Kimya. As of March 31, 2017, Polisan Yapı Kimyasalları A.Ş. has been transferred to Polisan Kimya, with all of its assets and liabilities as a result of the restructuring need in construction chemicals to increase efficiency.
Having been established in Dilovası Organized Industrial Zone, Polisan Kimya has a competitive edge due to its logistical advantage with close proximity to the chemical materials port, as well as the highway and railways, and continues its investments to grow both vertically and horizontally.
