Κείμενο αιτιολόγησης υποψηφιότητας: Megara Resins was established in 1961 by Anastassios Fanis and has initially functioned as a unit which produced gum rosin and turpentine from Greek crude gum.
During the 1970’s, the company began producing paper size for the paper mill industry. A decade later, Megara Resins started the production of specialties from gum rosin such as esters, maleic resins, rosin modified, phenolics and amino resins for the paper industry. The production of alkyd and acrylic resins as well as new improved gum rosin products and specialties for the concrete and pulp industry flourished during the 90’s.
In the beginning of 2001, the company started the production of unsaturated polyesters for composites as well as the production of water based dispersions for the paint and adhesives industry. In 2011 Megara Resins started the production of saturated polyester resins and additives for Powder Coatings. three years later, in 2014.
Megara Resins remains firmly committed to the pillars of innovation and new technologies and is widely regarded as being the most innovative Greek supplier to the coatings industry through its continued investment in R&D, technical support and new product development.
Megara Resins offers its customers advanced and diverse products and technologies for surfaces with an emphasis on environmentally friendly products such as powder coating resins, rosin dispersions, alkyd resins, water-based acrylic dispersions, and unsaturated polyester resins.
