RI Chemical Corporation (RI Chem) is a wholly Filipino-owned subsidiary of Resins Incorporated, one of the more diversified companies in the Philippines. RI Chem traces its roots to Resins Inc. (RI), which was established in 1956 to venture into the manufacture of plywood adhesives. A year after, Resins Inc. entered into a licensing agreement with Reichhold Chemicals Inc. (RCI), USA, then one of the world’s largest producers of synthetic resins. The agreement lasted for 25 years.
Resins Inc. has expanded its operations producing synthetic resins for essential industries such as paint, ink, plywood and woodworking, handicraft, furniture, foundry, adhesives, and fiberglass reinforced plastics. In 1996, RI Chem assumed the manufacturing and marketing activities of Resins Inc., particularly in the manufacture of synthetic resins business and that of other industrial chemicals.
