Chemicals Division

By acquiring selected companies of the Polish chemical sector in the beginning of the new millennium, PCC successfully accomplished a backward integration from pure chemical trader to producer.

The Chemicals Division of the PCC Group includes one of Poland's largest chemical plants. At the site in Brzeg Dolny near Wrocław, PCC Rokita SA manufactures chemicals such as polyols, chlorine and plastics additives for use in many segments including the automotive, furniture, and plastics industries. The "Rokopol iPol®" polyol manufactured here is the main ingredient of speciality foams. They are manufactured using PCC's "iPoltec®" technology and used for the production of comfortable cold-cure foam mattresses. At its production sites in Brzeg Dolny and Płock (Poland), PCC Exol SA manufactures surfactants for the cleaning and laundry detergents, and cosmetics industries.
