Chimcomplex of Borzesti (Bacau County, eastern), a leading chemicals company, exported 73 percent of its production in 2007, with the company’s revenues on this segment having stood at 37 million euros.
Chimcomplex General Manager Virgiliu Bancila says that the sodium chloride products of the company are exported to the Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Hungary, Bulgaria and Ukraine.
For 2008, Bancila is expecting the company to preserve its share in the market for sodium chloride products, increase its share on the inorganic chlorides and alkylamines sectors, and reduce its share in the market for solvents. The company targets an increase in turnover of 32 percent from 2007, as well as a rise of 30 percent in production.
At the same time, the company is to invest in specific equipment, such as those to co-generate energy and re-concentrate residual sulfuric acid. In 2007, Chimcomplex focused mainly on upgrading its technological processes and improving environmental protection, on an 8-million-euro investment budget.
The sodium chloride necessary in the production process is brought from Borzesti from the Targu-Ocna salt mine, with the rest of the raw materials coming from local and foreign suppliers.
