The company operational activities have been organized into six enterprises: Polyamide; Acetow; Novecare; Silcea; Eco Services; and Energy Services.


Polyamide offers various polyamide types and grades. Upstream of this production line, it produces two major polymer families-the PA 6 and PA 6.6 polymers. Downstream, it develops from the PA 6 and PA 6.6 polymers product lines with added-value, such as engineering plastics, industrial fibers and yarns, as well as textiles. The 6.6 polyamide-based products include intermediates, polymers and engineering plastics. Polyamide’s products include:

Intermediates: Intermediates are manufactured from petrochemical derivatives (natural gas, butadiene, coumene, ammonia, nitric acid and cyclohexane, mainly). They are essential elements to obtain the PA 6.6 polymers required for manufacturing technical plastics, industrial fibers and textile yarns. With the STABAMID brand, the Enterprise offers a line of PA 6.6 polymers, which contributes features, such as UV protection and antistatic functions. Intermediate products from HMD also have application in paints. Intermediates and polymers are used in industrial paints, textiles, tires, airbag, automotive, and electronics.

Solvents and Derivatives: Solvents and Derivatives, which are manufactured in Brazil, includes phenol, bisphenol A, adipic acid and oxygenated solvents. Oxygenated solvents are used in industrial paints, leather, automotive, packaging, inks, industrial products, and consumer goods.

Phenol: Phenol is the principal raw material needed to produce the resin used for plywood production (construction), foundries (automotive industry) and abrasives.

Oxygenate Solvents: Oxygenate Solvents (acetone, acetic acid and its derivatives) are used in the automotive industry (paints, metal cleaning) and industrial products (flexible packaging, coatings, adhesives, agrochemistry, textiles and leather) or consumer goods (home and personal care).

Engineering Plastics: Engineering Plastics are used for their mechanical and thermal properties in high-tech sectors, such as the automotive, electrical, and electronics industries, and in various consumer and industrial goods, such as sports and recreational equipment. Engineering plastics are used as alternatives to steel and aluminum, which leads to significant weight savings and gives designers greater freedom. Its primary brand is Technyl.

SWOT Analysis

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis

Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:

  • How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?

Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.

PESTEL Analysis

PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.

Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.

Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:

  • Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
  • Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
  • Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
  • Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
  • Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
  • Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?

IFE, EFE, IE Matrices

The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.

The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.

The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.

Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.

Porter Five Forces Analysis

The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:

  1. What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
  2. Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
  3. What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
  4. How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
  5. How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?

VRIO Analysis

VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:

  • Tangible resources
    • Financial
    • Physical
    • Technological
    • Organizational
  • Intangible resources
    • Human
    • Innovation and Creativity
    • Reputation
  • Organizational capabilities

The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:

  • Valuable?
  • Rare?
  • Costly to imitate?
  • Organized properly?
