RadiciGroup is one of the leading manufacturers of polyamide 6 and 66 (RadipolR) and related intermediates (RadichemR).

Technological innovation aimed at improving and optimizing the traditional adipic acid and nitric acid production processes, new plant construction, research and development.
Energy and entrepreneurial spirit combined with managerial and technical competence, flexibility and immediate response to the needs of the market.

These are the key elements of success driving the growth of RadiciGroup in the chemicals sector.

With production sites in
Novara, specializing in PA 66, Villa DOgna and Casnigo, specializing in PA 6, and Zeitz, specializing in adipic acid and cyclohexanol, as well as two trading companies in Switzerland and Shanghai, the RadiciGroup chemicals business not only generates 25% of the Groups global sales but is also key to the upstream vertical integration of the Groups polyamide 6 and 66 production chain.

The heart of the RadiciGroup chemicals business area is the
Novara production facility, with a total area of over 350,000 square metres. Its fully integrated production cycle uses ammonia, cyclohexanol and natural gas as raw materials to manufacture polyamide 66 and related intermediates as end products; it includes production lines for nitric acid, adipic acid, hydrogen, hexamethylenediamine, 66 salt and polyamide 66.
The Novara plant is designed for maximum production flexibility. This advantage allows RadiciGroup to meet market demand swiftly and supply its customers with various grades of polyamide 66 for diverse applications, such as fibres and engineering plastics.

RadiciGroup is an industrial multinational with upstream vertical integration in the chemicals sector and downstream integration in polyamide 6 and 66 production for the textiles and engineering plastics sector. Therefore, RadiciGroup can closely track market changes, understand the needs of its customers and develop tailored solutions. Today RadiciGroup products reach chemicals markets around the globe: Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa, North America and South America.

In the chemicals area, RadiciGroup manufactures PA 6 and PA 66 polymers (RadipolR), adipic acid, nitric acid, hexamethylenediamine, 66 salt, AGS dicarboxylic acid mixture and dicarboxylic acid esters (RadichemR). In addition RadiciGroup sells glass fibre and ammonia.

1986 - The story of RadiciGroup in the chemicals sector began in the spring of 1986, when Gianni Radici, the founder of RadiciGroup, decided to buy a former Montedison factory and put it back into production. The site, located in Via Fauser in Novara, Italy, had been inactive for about three years, and some production departments were in a complete state of neglect.

Before closing down, the Montedison site had three production lines: the first produced nitric acid; the second, adipic acid; and the third was salification
塩化, the last stage of the production process.

Through the determination of Gianni Radici and the dedication of a team of engineers and technicians, the abandoned factory was restored and revamped in a relatively short time. The adipic acid and nitric acid production plants were technologically upgraded and put back into operation. The investment of considerable economic resources and a great planning effort by management led to the success of the project.

Thus, Radici Chimica SpA was founded in the city of Novara, where RadiciGroup was able to find a great wealth of tradition, experience and expertise in the chemical sector.

1991 At the Radici Chimica site in Novara, a new upstream plant was built to produce hexamethylenediamine, needed to complete the polyamide 66 production chain.
Thus polyamide 66 production was launched.

1998 The sales unit Radici Chem Trade BV was created in Mendrisio, Switzerland.

Radici Chimica Deutschland GmbH, a new plant for the production of adipic acid, was set up. This new German site was designed and built in the late 1990s at the Zeitz (Troglitz) industrial centre, located in the heart of the former East Germany, and was put into operation in August 2001.

Today, Radici Chimica Deutschland GmbH is among Europe
s most technologically advanced producers of adipic acid (80,000 tons/year), nitric acid and cyclohexanol.

With over 200 employees and close collaboration with local schools and institutes of higher education, Radici Chimica Deutschland GmbH can rightfully be considered one of the driving forces in the development of the Zeitz industrial park.

2003 The trading company
RadiciChem Shanghai Co. Ltd was created to market PA6 and PA66 polymers, adipic acid, AGS dicarboxylic acid mixture, dicarboxylic acid esters, and PA6 and PA66 fibres.

2004 I
n a joint venture with ATEL, the Novel combined-cycle cogeneration (turbogas) power plant was erected in the province of Novara. The plant has an output of 100 MW of electric power and can supply the steam required by Radici Chimica SpA for its operation.

Over the years RadiciGroup has expanded its chemicals business and become a world leader in the production of polyamide 6 and 66, and related intermediates. With production sites in Novara (specializing in PA 66), Villa DOgna and Casnigo (specializing in PA 6) and Zeitz (specializing in adipic acid and cyclohexanol), as well as two trading companies in Switzerland and Shanghai, RadiciGroup can reach consumers in chemicals markets all over the world: Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa, North and South America.

In the chemicals area, RadiciGroup manufactures PA 6 and PA 66 polymers, adipic acid, nitric acid, hexamethylenediamine, 66 salt, AGS dicarboxylic acid mixture and dicarboxylic acid esters. In addition RadiciGroup sells other chemical products: glass fibre and ammonia.
