Global Amines is a joint venture between Clariant and Wilmar with headquarters in Singapore and own production facilities in China and in Germany/Gendorf. The company combines Wilmar’s integrated agricultural business model and strong position for plant-based fats and oils with Clariant’s technical know-how, well-established market presence for amines and amine derivatives, and the access to amine derivatives across more than a dozen Clariant production facilities around the globe. This makes Global Amines the first fully integrated and competitive company along the value chain from renewable raw materials to selected amine derivatives.
Based on a fully global orientation, the company supports customers in all regions and continuously looks for growth opportunities, with the objective of becoming a new leader in the markets for fatty amines and selected amine derivatives.
Since formation of the joint venture in 2013, the global sales revenue has more than doubled, in line with highly utilized production facilities in Germany and China. To further grow the global business, Global Amines currently invests into a new production location for tertiary amines at the WILMAR Gresik oleochemical site in Surabaya/Indonesia, based on Gendorf know-how.
At the Chemical Park GENDORF, Global Amines Germany GmbH employs approx. 110 people in the nitrile-amine operation. In four production areas with 11 production units and further distillation and filling lines, amines and derivatives are manufactured for customer application in washing and cleaning agents, cosmetics, emulsifiers, coolants, lubricants, and disinfectants.
