Our History

From the beginning, we’ve been driven by chemistry. The kind that bonds people. The kind that connects them. The personal kind. The human kind.

1924 - 1965; The Trading Business: Elkasan

1924 - 1965, The Trading Business: Elkasan
Our history dates back to 1924 when Italian born and raised Luigi Kaslowski establishes Elkasan to trade fibers, yarns, textile specialty chemicals and machinery in Istanbul, Turkey.
1920s mark a substantial decade as the Republic of Turkey is established in 1923 and steady industrialization and reforms take place to westernize the country. In this conjuncture of rapid technological, industrial and socio-cultural development, Elkasan serves as a trading catalyzer representing global reputable companies to serve the local market.

1965 - 1975; Establishment of Organik Kimya

1965 - 1975, Establishment of Organik Kimya
Aldo Kaslowski, son of Luigi Kaslowski, establishes Organik Kimya in 1965 to diversify from trading to manufacturing. He invests in a production facility with a capacity of 6.000 tons in the Bomonti district of Istanbul. With a focus on polymer emulsions and textile auxillaries, Organik Kimya starts its steady growth years.
With Aldo’s ambition and passion to grow his business, Organik Kimya begins utilizing licenses from world renown companies. This business model coaches Organik Kimya to diversify and advance its technological know-how. Also investing in the business by increasing R & D, production and technology capabilities, Organik Kimya secures its position in the textiles market as a “value adding solution provider.”

1975 - 1985, Kemerburgaz, Istanbul Headquarters
Looking to grow the production capacity, Organik Kimya moves to its current production facility in Kemerburgaz, Istanbul in 1977. Production capacity escalates to 42.000 tons.
With the capacity increase, Organik Kimya firmly begins its first export operations to surrounding geographies. Relentlessly looking to acquire and utilize various technology offerings, Organik Kimya begins to explore penetration to different markets and segments.

1985 - 1995; Domestic Market Leadership

1985 - 1995, Domestic Market Leadership
The move to Kemerburgaz, Istanbul production facility and progressive capacity expansions facilitate Organik Kimya to become the leading domestic polymer emulsions producer in 1990.
In 1994, Organik Kimya becomes a part of Responsible Care®, a global, voluntary initiative developed autonomously by the chemical industry to improve health, safety and environmental performance.

1995 - 2005; Sectoral and Geographical Expansion

1995 - 2005, Sectoral and Geographical Expansion
2000s record a “construction boom”, especially in the developing regions of the world. Seizing this opportunity, Organik Kimya diversifies from its traditional product portfolio of textile polymer emulsions and starts developing solutions for the needs of the paint, coatings and construction markets.
This period also instructs Organik Kimya to focus on the European market: Organik Kimya quickly acknowledges that the European market is much more demanding for innovative, ecological, best-in-class solutions than any other region of the world. Organik Kimya strategically pursues the European market as it aligns with its innovation strategy.
By early 2000s, Organik Kimya aspires to enter the world of adhesives. For this reason, in 2004, it acquires ATR Chemicals in Balerna, Switzerland for the production of solvent borne acrylics used in adhesives and textiles.
This aspiration also drives Organik Kimya to form a joint venture with a leading adhesives player in 2005 to gain full access to the industrial adhesives market. The joint venture cultivates customer partnership, one of Organik Kimya’s most valuable core qualities today. By partnering with the customer to understand their technology, needs and challenges, Organik Kimya ensures that a holistic customer value is created. Customer intimacy and value creation are internalized across the entire organization.
On the product stewardship front, Organik Kimya makes the full shift to environmentally friendly, water borne APEO-free products. Organik Kimya is the first specialty chemicals manufacturer in the region to make the full shift.

2005 - 2015; Local and International Investments

2005 - 2015, Local and International Investments
In the ever changing and consolidating polymer emulsions market, customers struggle to find flexible, agile solution providers for niche applications. This situation paves the way for Organik Kimya’s new vision which is to grow in the European market and fill in the gap for this market need. Consequently, Organik Kimya’s second investment for a production plant for polymer emulsions takes place in 2007. The Rotterdam plant, with 80.000 tons of production capacity, is inaugurated in the Botlek chemical complex on Rotterdam, Netherlands harbor to better serve customers located in the western hemisphere.
Organik Kimya’s drive to further grow with innovation is strengthened when R&D receives an accreditation from Republic of Turkey’s Ministry of Industry to operate as an “R&D Center” in 2009. Organik Kimya is the only specialty chemicals producer in Turkey that has a certified R & D Center by the Turkish government. This endorsement commences a period of joint projects with Tubitak (Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey), research institutions and universities. It also accelarates investments in technology and employees.
A sales office in the US is inaugurated in 2010 to tap the market potential in the North America and the Caribbean to explore as a next frontier for growth.
Leveraging its broad know-how, Organik Kimya invests in two new technology platforms: Powder polymers and hotmelt adhesives. Hence, Organik Kimya inaugurates Turkey’s first and only powder polymer production plant with a capacity of 20.000 tons in Tuzla, Istanbul in 2011 to address the needs of the construction chemicals industry. Organik Redispersible Powders (ORP®) is the brand name of Organik Kimya’s powder polymers.
Tuzla, Istanbul production location also hosts hotmelt production with 12.000 tons of capacity to serve the industrial adhesives market. Solutions streching from hygiene and personal care, furniture, bookbinding to packaging are marketed with various sub-brands under the Organik Adhesives brand umbrella.
