The values that define us
During its evolution, Chimo has always put relentless emphasis on its values:
These are not just buzzwords, but the company’s core principles that define who we are, what we stand for, and how we want to be perceived. For us, staying loyal to who we are is crucial. Because it has proven to be the foundation of Chimo’s success, and because it will define our future.
Chimo has taken multiple actions to verify the absence of forced labor, slavery and human trafficking within its group and supply chain.
Chimo was founded in 1991 when he had the opportunity to buy the premises of a dynamite company in Canada. This enabled Chimo to work out the luminous idea he had: recycling production waste from the plastics producing petrochemical companies.
From there, Chimo grew into a comprehensive service provider to the petrochemical industry, constantly pushing the boundaries of plastics applications and bringing the (re)use of plastics to a next level, with sustainability continuously on our mind. Over the years, the ambition of global expansion and market leadership in polymer and chemical distribution, recycling and compounding, and building materials, became a reality.
