About Polykemi

Since its beginning in 1968, the company’s mission has been the same: to strive to produce the best custom-designed plastic compounds in the world.

From the start, Scandinavia was our main market and although it continues to be important, we are now active in most European countries, and indeed, all over the world. We have no aspirations to become one of the largest multinational plastic compound manufacturers in the world. Instead, we remain one step ahead by relying on our strength – offering a customized product line with such unique, creative solutions that no one is able to compete with us on equal terms. 

Polykemi is an innovative knowledge company that meets the market’s demands for world-class end products. Just ask our customers around the globe.

We accomplish this through our documented expertise in color matching, multiple reinforcements, and fibers in a wide variety of base polymers. Our strategy is to work closely with our customers, guided by our principles: reliability, excellence, superior problem-solving and long-term customer relationships.
