Sinterama, headquartered in Italy, is the European leader in the production of colored polyester yarns. The group is vertically integrated and covers the entire production process that goes from polyester chips to yarns. Sinterama products are considered specialties and used in the production of textiles for automotive, home textile, clothing, and woven label sectors. The group generated approximately €130 million of revenues and €12 million of EBITDA in 2018.

Headquartered in Bangkok and listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand, IVL is a major global chemicals company and one of the largest vertically integrated polyester value chain producers in the world, serving world-class customers in diversified end markets.
