Our Experts

“Our introduction with India dates back to the eighties when we started sourcing from India intermediates for dyestuffs where India had a predominant manufacturing position. Then, in the nineties, we established a local Joint venture (already named Chematek India) to supply petrochemicals additives in India which was later followed by a joint venture, sponsored by ENI, with a local manufacturer of lubricants to market Eni’s lubricants in India. We have an exceptional team working in India and are excited about the prospects of continued growth for many years to come.”
