First established in Lebanon in 1979, as agents for international chemical companies such as Shell, Solvochem has rapidly evolved to suit the ever-growing demands of present day. Capitalising on the availability of tank storage in Lebanon, Solvochem then initiated and developed an alternate transport and delivery system for the distribution of goods to other neighbouring countries. Thus assisting industrialists to convert to using road tank-car bulk deliveries instead of drummed liquid products, facilitating the complete work system. With the efficiency of this conversion Solvochem took the lead and expanded to establish independent bulk terminals in Aqaba, Jordan allowing them to serve the eastern part of the Levant in addition to another terminal in Adabiyah port to serve Egypt. Solvochem's success in those markets was extended through cooperation and joint ventures to establish a marketing presence in Africa in addition to a nucleus terminal in Kenya.
Today Solvochem is continuously expanding the scope of its operations. It anticipates, and is well positioned to meet the increasing demand for competitive logistics and services, as the developing economies in the area continue to require more diversified products.
