History

Great changes

New joint ventures were established:

  • With participation of the government of Moscow - JSC Percarbonate producing sodium percarbonate.
  • Jointly with the Hungarian firm Abona – Pronova Ltd on diphenylguanidine production.
  • With participation of the firm Dupont (USA) - JV Dupont-Khimprom Ltd manufacturing herbicides for agriculture.
  • JV Cation Ltd with Pumice Trading Corp. Ltd (UK) on production of dyes for synthetic fibers.
2003-2004 - Projects on energy saving were implemented. The plant's own boiler shop for steam production was commissioned. New productions were developed, the existing ones were reconstructed.

2002 - The agreement on social-economic collaboration was signed between the management of Khimprom and the government of the Chuvash Republic.

2001-2002 – Implementation of investment projects was carried out: reconstruction of waste incinerator, acetonanil-N production, development of semi-conductor trichlorosilane production.

September 2000 – On the results of the competition common stocks package of JSC Khimprom, former property of the Chuvash Republic , was handed over to Volzhskaya Investment Company as trust stocks.

Development

1994 – Transformation of Khimprom association into public joint stock company. 

1991 – The enterprise started the production of highly effective herbicides of new generation based on sulfonylurea.

1987 – The shop of household chemicals began its operation. The output of consumer goods became an important aspect of the company's activity.

1982 – The unique complex on hydrogen peroxide production was established.
Productions of acetonanile, cationic dyes were increased.

1981 – The bleacher “Perox” output was started.

1980s were the years of mastering the production of organosilicon monomers and polymeric products on their basis. The manufacture of organosilicon varnishes KO-810, KO-075 was organized as well as resins, silicon tetrachloride, trichlorosilane, phenyltrichlorosilane, oxyethylidenediphosphonic acid, ethylsilicate-40, tetraethoxysilane and other. Already operating productions were successfully expanded.

“For the first time in the USSR”

Commissioning of every shop, development of new products were accompanied by the words “for the first time in the USSR ”. This fact demonstrates the great importance of the plant for the country economy.

1971-1975 - The largest scale of industrial construction. 17 production facilities were commissioned, 41 items of new products were mastered. Among them – direct dyes for cotton, silk and viscose fabrics, acetonanil (first line), softener-2, chlorous sulfuril and others. For the first time in the USSR at Khimprom the production of organophosphorus complexones for oil-processing and heat and power engineering was created. 

1968 – Productions of chloromethanes, chlorophos, aniline came on stream.

1968 – The chemical plant was named after Lenin Komsomol.

1967 – The basic production of chlorine and caustic soda was started. Shops of electrolysis, electroalkali solutions, chlorine liquefaction were commissioned.

1965-1966 - First production in the USSR of light stabilizers benzon OA and OM was set into operation as well as production of dyes for cotton, flax and silk.

November 1964 – The first lot of the cationic blue dye “K” was manufactured. For the first time in the USSR at Cheboksary chemical plant the production of dyes for nitron fibers was mastered.

Upspring of great chemistry

June 1964 – the first sample of the cationic blue dye “K” was produced at the plant pilot shop;

1963 – the construction was declared “All-union komsomol construction site.” Mechanical-repair shop, power shops, instrumentation and control, transport shop were put into operation. The plant's laboratory was being created.

1960 – the beginning of construction: erection of the plant first buildings and first houses of the new town.
