ABOUT RI CHEM
RI Chemical Corporation (RI Chem) is a wholly Filipino-owned subsidiary of Resins Inc., engaged in the business of manufacturing resins, plywood adhesives and coatings. It serves the domestic and international industries such as paint, ink, plywood and woodworking, handicraft, furniture and automobile, and fiberglass.
RI Chem traces back its roots to Resins Inc. (RI) which was established in 1955 to venture into the manufacture of plywood adhesives. A year after, Resins Inc. entered into a licensing agreement with Reichold Chemicals Inc. (RCI), USA, one of the world’s largest producers of synthetic resins. The agreement lasted for 25 years.
Resins Inc. expanded its operations producing resins for industries involved in surface coatings, paints, printing inks, textiles and fiberglass reinforced plastics. Aside from its chemical plant in Pasig City, the company established another chemical plant in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental.
In 1996, RI Chem assumed the manufacturing and marketing activities of Resins Inc., particularly in the manufacture of synthetic resins and other industrial chemicals for various industries in the country. (see www. ri-chem.com)
RI Chem manages two business affiliates. One is CTNI, which was established in April 2006 to set up and operate nurseries for the propagation of seedlings by cloning and other means of seedling production from well-selected stocks of various fast growing tree species. The other is MC Shipping, which manages PICMW 1 and PICMW 2 marine vessels which transport RI Chem products to its various depots in Luzon and Mindanao.
