Our History

Mare is one of the largest privately owned and European based manufacturers and suppliers of chemical solutions in the market today.

Mare was founded in 1979, although its roots can be traced as far back as the earliest part of the 20th century. Since its conception, the company has grown both organically and through acquisition. Mare now manufacturers over 220,000 tonnes of products each year, placing itself as the leading manufacturer of high quality functional chemicals.

From Paper and Board to manufacturing as a whole.

At its point of conception, Mare was founded on the supply of functional products for use in the production of Paper and Board. This specialist area of manufacturing remains of huge importance to the Mare Group. Through strategic expansion, Mare now plays a leading role in many other industries including Construction, Textiles, Minerals and Coatings, and Detergents.


Production changed in the 1930’s, to include emulsions based on reinforced resinic acids.


In the 1960’s, a new generation of synthetic sizing agents was developed in our laboratories, enhancing and extending the existing line of increasingly sophisticated natural sizes.


Building on this heritage of knowledge and innovation, Mare Spa was founded in 1979.
