Our History


ECORE group was formed when Maskem Gulf, Maskem Egypt and Maskem IPG, three leading distribution companies of specialty chemicals in the Middle East and Africa region since 2005, were merged upon the acquisition of their majority shares by KLSC in December 2013. Since then, the group has witnessed remarkable growth in all spheres of its operations across geographies.

Managed by experienced professionals with more than three decades of successful track record in the Middle East and Africa Region, ECORE was conceived as a ‘one-stop shop’ for specialty ingredients, with a detailed and comprehensive product portfolio. The group serves a gamut of sectors ranging from food to pharmaceuticals in the fast-growing mar-kets of the region.

In addition to expanding its portfolio of principals and products, the move enabled ECORE to grow its operations in the region and strengthen its team, thereby positioning itself to offer efficient and cost effective services through upgraded logistics solutions.

Backed by a legacy of almost three decades in the field, the group has a network of more than 45 reputed international chemical ingredient manufacturers who cater to the needs of diverse industries. Additionally, state-of-the-art regional sales facilities, strategically located warehousing facilities and a comprehensive network of sub-providers in secondary and tertiary markets allow ECORE to meet and exceed expectations of the region’s specialty ingredients sector.

Today, ECORE is perfectly poised to lead the specialty ingredients distribution sector, ef-fectively bridging the gap between reliable international manufacturers and customers in local markets.
