Company History

1995

Comar Chemicals (Pty) Ltd., is a private South African company, that was formed in 1995.

The business of Comar is the manufacture of speciality Organometallic compounds for a variety of applications. From the beginning, the company focussed mainly on exporting chemicals, initially mostly to Europe, but then also to USA, and South East Asia.

All products produced and sold by Comar, were developed inhouse, leading to the company having a very strong chemical technology base.

Comar developed a high activity, stable Neodymium Versatate, that is used as a synthetic rubber catalyst - this product is one of the companies flagship innovations, and is exported to almost every continent, to major synthetic rubber producers.

Growth in products, customers and production volumes soon necessitated an expansion, which was realised by moving the manufacturing facilities of the company to a new plant in Atlantis, a industrial town, some 30 km north of Cape Town.
