Company History


Resinall Corp began in the late 1970's with the acquisition of Carolina Processing Corporation located in Severn, North Carolina, about 75 miles southwest of Norfolk, Virginia. Starting with this small antiquated resin facility, over the next several years the site was upgraded with new resin manufacturing equipment, a product development and sales service center and expanded administrative capability.


Based on the company's early commercial success, Resinall saw the need for a resin facility located in the central Gulf of Mexico region. Geographically, such a location would be closer to hydrocarbon feedstocks and other key raw materials, while providing lower cost shipping to the mid-west. In 1984, Resinall acquired the former Dixie Pine Chemical Co, situated on about 100 acres located in Hattiesburg, MS. Here a new state of the art resin plant was built which more than doubled the company's resin manufacturing capacity.

Over the years both plants production and technical support facilities have been significantly expanded. The two plants offer manufacturing redundancy and better geographic proximity to customers than a single location. Today these two US plants have a combined annual capacity approaching 160 million pounds.

A key part of our future growth is based on expansion into new resin markets. At our Hattiesburg facility is a new hydrogenation plant designed to make Water White Hydrocarbon resins which are used in hot melt and high performance adhesives. This sizeable investment in new resin technology is only the beginning in our continuing effort to remain successful in a changing market place.
