JANA YOUR PARTNER FOR EPOXY IN THE MIDDLE EAST

JANA – Jubail Chemical Industries Company situated in the Industrial City of Jubail, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an affiliates of Nama Chemicals and produces a range of Epoxy Resins – Liquid, Solution and Solid forms for a variety of applications. From a modest beginning in 1999, JANA today has the capability of producing 120,000 Metric Tons of Epoxy resin per year. These are produced under the license of Huntsman Advanced Materials, USA (originally obtained from Ciba-Geigy, Switzerland ). JANA is the only producer of Epoxy resins in the Middle East and Africa. JANA enjoys leadership position in these markets which has been possible thanks to its understanding of the needs of its customers. Jana is currently the market leader in these across the Middle East and Africa.

JANA markets their epoxy resins under two brand names – Araldite® and Razeen®. The Araldite® brand is over 50 years old and very well known globally. Araldite® resins are produced and sold across all of the territories covered by the licence in the Middle East and Africa where Jana is the sole authorised supplier of the licensed grades. JANA also sells under its own registered brand name, Razeen®.

Currently, products manufactured and supplied to customers as Razeen® are available globally, the Araldite® range of products in many cases offer direct countertypes to the Razeen® grades but due to license restrictions are only available in selected countries in Africa and the Middle East.

The introduction of Razeen® enabled JANA to offer customized tailor-made grades of the resins required by customers to meet the ever changing market and legislative requirements.

Determination to become a market leader globally , transformed what began as a vision into one of the most modern epoxy producers in the world. JANA has been ever-changing, adapting and evolving. JANA added 60,000 metric tons capacity to its existing plant giving a capacity of 120,000 metric tons with growth plans in place to take this to 240,000.

JANA is now realizing the vision of its promoters to backward integrate its operations and are forging ahead with plans for capacity increase of our Epichlorohydrin, a key raw material for making epoxy resins by 30% to 39,000 tonnes.
