Centro-chem company history
Our company - Centro-chem - was founded in 1998 in Turka as an initiative of four friends. At the beginning we had just one truck and we used it to deliver locally.
Today, over 20 years on, our team consists of more than 100 highly-qualified specialists.
We have 25 employees working in our Trading Department. They purchase and sell chemical raw materials with the support from our Quality Control, Logistics and Finance Department, and also our warehouse operatives and experienced drivers.
We have two warehouses. The main one is located in Turka near Lublin which incorporates a bonded warehouse. The second one is located near the port of Gdańsk. In 2019 we opened the warehouse in Gdańsk. This investment helps us organize faster deliveries of containers from seaport as well as improve distribution of goods across Poland. We opened also a second bonded warehouse here to make our offer more attractive for customers outside of the European Union. The total warehouse space covers over 8000 m2.
As one of few companies in the chemical raw materials distribution sector in Poland, we own a fleet of vans and articulated lorries – this allows us to safely deliver goods directly to our customers and keep our delivery costs competitive.
Over several years of constant growth, we’ve built a wide product range and gained extensive experience delivering excellence to our customers both on foreign and domestic markets.
Currently, we are working with over 2000 companies.
We are proud to be recognized as a reliable business partner resulting in year-on-year growth. In 2019 our annual turnover was 34 million Euros.
