A member of the BCI Group of Companies, Huntsman APC (HAPC) was commissioned in 1985 as the Kingdom’s first manufacturer of rigid polyurethane chemicals. The company has been instrumental in securing the lion’s share of the insulation market and promoting its versatile plastic materials beyond their conventional applications.
With technical back-up from its joint venture partner Huntsman Polyurethanes (Huntsman Products), HAPC offers soft, rigid, and semi-rigid polyurethane systems for the manufacture of different density foams. Being the lightest insulation material with the lowest thermal conductivity, polyurethane foam has emerged as the No.1 choice of insulation product in the Arabian Peninsula.
The success of this product owes a lot to the company’s marketing strategies as well as its ability to blend the chemicals in order to match and respond to their customers’ ever changing specifications.
The tailor-made polyol systems are tested in the company’s Quality Control Laboratory. This facility benefits from the research and product development efforts of Huntsman Polyurethanes, whose contribution to the development of polyurethane technology is acknowledged worldwide. Besides covering the vast Saudi Arabian market, HAPC regularly exports to markets in the Gulf States and other Middle Eastern countries.
