From our desire to bring in Romania the newest technology and improve the quality of the paints and plastics produced in Romania, Chemco Trade turns from the exclusive representative of a multinational company into active agent and distributor in Romania as well as in the neighboring countries like Moldavia or Bulgaria, expanding year after year the product portfolio covering complete solutions: pigments, additives, extenders, fillers, UV absorbers, resins for both water based paints and solvents.
In 2000, together with the most important Romanian producers at that time, Chemco Trade helps starting Paint Industry Association in Romania with the purpose of representing the best interests of the Romanian producers and to keep permanent contact with European Forums in order to harmonize the Romanian legislation with the European as well as attracting investments in the paint industry.
