NCS Resins is the largest manufacturer of unsaturated polyester resins in the southern hemisphere. Established in the early 1900's, the Natal Chemical Syndicate was formed to manufacture methylated and rectified spirit for the South African tanning industry. The current core business of manufacture and distribution of unsaturated polyester resins and associated products commenced in 1968 with a technology license from Scott Bader of the UK.
Purchased from private ownership in 1988 by Sentrachem, the company returned to private ownership in 2001.
With 57% of the company owned by executive black management and shareholders, NCS Resins is well aligned with the new business realities in a non-racial South Africa.
The company had restructured in line with its philosophy of service excellence and the company vision, "to be the supplier of choice through service excellence". Armed with a strong balance sheet, the company is determined to grow the business organically, especially on the export front.
NCS Resins operates under a technology license agreement with Reichhold to manufacture the Norpol and Polylite brands, as well as produces their own in-house technology. NCS Resins is the sole global licensee of Reichhold, the world's largest manufacturer of polyester resins. Although NCS Resins is a proudly South African entity, it ensures that its customers feel the full global benefit of its connection to Reichhold by granting them access to the latest technologies. In addition to this resin-technology support, NCS Resins ensures that the South African market receives the very best international products by having leading suppliers of accessory products such as peroxide catalysts, glassfibre reinforcements, release agents into the polyester industry as principles. This includes companies such as Plexus, Lantor, Magnum Venus Plastech, Akzo Nobel, Axel, Hawkeye, Vivian Regina and Owens Corning. The major sectors the company serves are the construction and transport sectors, although its products also feature in recreation, chemicals and marine sectors.
NCS Resins exports 20% of manufactured products into Africa, the Middle East and the Indian OceanIslands. In addition, base resins are exported to NCS Australia, where products are tailored for local consumption in our blending facility in Sydney.
Facilities NCS Resins has modern manufacturing and laboratory facilities in Isipingo and Pinetown, both in the Durban area and branches in Durban, Port Elizabeth, CapeTown and Johannesburg. NCS Resins is also represented in Australia operating a blending and distribution business.
New Production Technology The company continues to extend its ability to replace imported products with local manufacture. New technology introduced with the assistance of our technology partners, Reichhold, allows for local manufacture of DCPD based resins as well as Vinyl Esters.
