Melamine from Puławy remains a hit

| Products |

Thanks to good location and excellent economic situation, Pulawy Company reap various benefits from the production of melamine. Those factors make it possible for the company to strengthen its prominent position on the market, that of the third producer of melamine in the world.

What is melamine used for?

Melamine is used for the production of synthetic resins, which are used for the manufacturing of ornamental laminates, wood-panels, glues, paints and polishes. Also, it is used in textile, automotive and electrical industries and home appliances.

The situation in the business

As a result of falling market supply, the prices of melamine increased at the end of 2012. Among the factors contributing to lower supply was a problem of the competition with returning to full production capacities and, in the case of another company which manufactures melamine, failure to use all powers of a new installation. Currently a ton of the substance costs around 1450 EUR per ton, which we in “PUŁAWY” consider a good price. At the moment about 30% of the melamine produced by “PUŁAWY” hits domestic market, and the rest is exported to European countries.

Good neighborhood is the basis

Excellent location of the enterprise is crucial for its success at selling melamine. Pulawy Company are based in Central-Eastern Europe, where wood-related industries, including furniture and construction, are based. Companies in those businesses require both melamine and urea, which they buy from “PUŁAWY” as a set. Thanks to comprehensive supplies to such clients, our company is able to establish long-term economic relations, benefit from a stable market and leverage the favorable geographical location.
