About us

Over the last decade the company Melamin d.d. Kočevje has succeeded in making an impact in the field of melamine chemistry. Among our custom- ers we are known as a supplier of excellent quality goods at competitive prices. We supply resins for paper, construction, wood, rubber, and the lacquer industry; impregnated decorative paper for the furniture industry, and impregnated materials for footwear manufacturing. We have lately achieved major progress and global visibility, especially with products based on hexamethylol-melamine (HMM) for the lacquer and rubber industry, as we introduced the latest state-of-the-art continuous technology in the world.

Despite the financial crisis, which is still felt in Europe, we have been increasing our sales with above-average growth rates. With our clearly defined vision and strategy, we intend to become one of the most important global players in the field of modified melamine resins.

We believe that the only solution against the constantly increasing raw material costs, severe global competition, unfavourable currency ratios, and increasing labour costs, can be found in products with greater added value and through introduction of modern technologies, mainly as a result of our own development. Therefore, we intensively invest in development of new products within melamine chemistry, with unique chemical and mechanical properties. At the same time we are increasing our cooperation with Slovenian and foreign external part- ners, who bring new perspectives and new solutions into our projects.

Beside our developmental efforts, we pay special attention to the environment in which we live and work. Through our investments in ecologically orientated projects, e.g. our own biochemical waste water treatment plant, closed water cooling system, air emission reduction, and recycling of solvents, we have succeeded in reducing our impact on the environment, even below the limits set by European legislation. Our openness to the public is visible in our Responsible Care programme that we have joined as one of the first participant companies in Slovenia. Since our goal is clearly defined, not even larger obstacles in the turbulent business environment can surprise us.
