Our Products Activities

Plastics

Most activities of Chimo are dealing with plastics as their primary product. Covering the most comprehensive portfolio of commodities and engineering thermoplastics, color masterbatches and additives, custom compounds and eco-friendly bioplastics, Chimo offers the one-stop-shop model to its customers across the globe. The reselling of commoditized plastics, such as polypropylene and polyethylene, goes hand in hand with the distribution of technical products, such as nylon and thermoplastic elastomers.

The commercialization of different products implies different customer needs: Chimo combines the ability to handle large volumes with the in-house technical expertise necessary for developing new product applications. Our customer base in the plastics field ranges from film and injection molders to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) in the automotive and E&E industry.

Chimo can be considered as the world’s largest service provider to the petrochemical industry, collaborating with key suppliers in the spirit of a long-term partnership: distributing producer branded prime products, reselling wide-specification or off grade resin, and manufacturing our own compounds are all core competences that we offer to the market. Every sale we make, however, is driven by value: Chimo guarantees the best possible service in the industry, both to its suppliers and to its customers.

Rubbers

Chimo’s commitment to provide a key service to the plastics market is complemented by strategic investment and growth in the global rubber industry.

Chimo is the largest reseller, distributor and recycler of rubber raw materials with an extensive portfolio encompassing elastomeric materials and synthetic & natural rubbers. We use our broad product range, deep market penetration, financial strength and our in-house hedging expertise to thrive in a financially volatile environment. This is to the benefit of our rubber customers, who range from large players in the tire industry to end-converters serving diverse applications in the automotive industry, building & construction, and other sectors.

With a corporate history of expansion from a Belgian scrap recycling activity to development of commercial channels to sell prime and “off spec” material in a market with relatively few players, and with the rubber industry shifting towards emerging economies, Chimo is committed to investment and growth in this exciting sphere in order to secure future success.
