Indorama Corporation is one of Asia’s leading chemical companies. Its origins trace back to 1975 with the start of Indorama Synthetics in Indonesia by its founder, M.L. Lohia, and his son, S.P. Lohia. Indorama Synthetics started as a cotton yarn spinning company. In 1991, the company diversified into the production of polyester fibres from petchem derivatives, and subsequently into the production of PET resins.
Today, Indorama Corporation, which is headquartered in Singapore, manufactures a multitude of products including nitrogen fertilizers, phosphate fertilizers, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyester, textiles, cotton fibre, and medical gloves.
