HELIOS RESINS CELEBRATES ITS 110th ANNIVERSARY AND INTRODUCES A NEW REACTOR
One of Helios’s biggest and most important investments this year was in the new reactor for resins production. This modern facility will replace the old smaller reactor with the aim to produce the most sophisticated water-based resins. Because it allows a bigger capacity, the total annual amount of resins produced in Helios Group will increase to 64.000 tons.
Introduction of the new resins reactor at Količevo
In May, the construction works on the new reactor were finished and the regular production of water-based resins is expected to start in July. Water-based resins are the basic component of water-based coatings, so with this new reactor, Helios will also increase the volume of environmentally friendly coatings.

This year Helios is celebrating 110 years of resin production. The history of Helios Resins began 110 years ago at the location of Color factory in Medvode. At that time seed oil was pressed and then further processed, a procedure that was a precursor to today’s production of alkyd resins. With the foundation of the Ljudevit Marx Company in 1924, the production of resins started also in Količevo.
