In 2005, Resin (Products & Technology) BV was founded as a spin-off from the Hartman plastics factory, a leading manufacturer in the Dutch garden furniture industry based in Enschede, the Netherlands (founded in 1983). Over time, Resin (Products & Technology) BV has built an experienced team of professionals and an impressive compounding infrastructure that currently serves a broad customer base in the building & construction, automotive, packaging and household sectors with a portfolio of technology developed around polyolefin-based compounds.
In 2011, Resin (Products & Technology) BV acquired the Yparex® extrudable adhesive resins business from DSM Engineering Plastics allowing it to expand its technical, R&D, and its customer service team capabilities. The Marketing & Sales and Application and Technical Support group of Yparex® is based on the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen, The Netherlands.
Resin (Products & Technology) BV and Yparex BV were separate companies under the umbrella of the RESIN Group of Companies. After the merger of the two companies, the cultures have grown together. In the last few years, Resin (Products & Technology) BV and Yparex BV jointly made significant investments to expand their operations and service capabilities in order to serve their respective global customer base more effectively. In 2017 they decided to continue under one new company name: THE COMPOUND COMPANY. The Compound Company has 2 product brands: Ecoforte® plastic performance compounds and Yparex® extrudable adhesive resins.
The main drivers of The Compound Company are Customer Focus, Product Development and Production Flexibility.
