Our history

over the years

The Joint-Stock Company “ORGACHIM” was established in 1901. This was the beginning of long years of prosperity, during which the production has experienced economic crises, regional wars and the two World Wars.


On 1 March 1901, a company has been organised and registered with the Trade Register of Ruse by Mr. Albert B. Iskovich with the trade name of “ALBERT B. ISKOVICH” and with legal headquarters in the Town of Ruse. Over the years until 1909, the business has grown and the Company was transformed into a Limited Partnership by merging with the Companies of Israel Levi and Rafael Kamhi. The main activities of the enterprise have been focused towards the manufacturing of paints and shoe polishes.

1911 – 1929

The first production buildings have been constructed of bricks in compliance with the statutory regulations. The Chemical Factory “Imalin” AD Sofia has been acquired. An agreement has been signed with a German Company “Chemische Fabrik Eisendrath” granting the right to manufacture and sell a wide range of shoe polishes, metal cleaning emulsions, floor oils etc. by using the brand names of “Imalin” and “Extralin”. The Company has been re-registered into a Joint Stock Company and became one of the largest companies in the Town of Ruse.


A new synthetic paint has been launched on the market - "Ferrolite against metal corrosion". The Company’s facilities have been further equipped with a lithography, a Boiled Linseed Oil (Varnish) plant, a cellulose division, ground paints and varnishes divisions, a linseed oil mill and a packaging machine.


The Company has been nationalized by the new Communist Government and renamed to “Gavril Genov” Chemical Factory in 1948. The Paint Factory owned by Simon Hirsch has also become part of the State-owed Chemical Factory.


For the first time after World War II, the production has been subject to exports to countries such as Turkey and Egypt. Varnish synthetic resins have been manufactured; alkyd resins have been gradually introduced. New product ranges have been developed – car paints and enamels, electrical insulating varnishes, "Balkid-52" and "Balkid-54" and many more.

1962 – 1982

Workshops have been successively built and put into operation – Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), Hash Acid, Iron Oxide Pigments, Unsaturated Polyester Resins and Phthalic Anhydride. The Boiled Linseed Oil (Varnish) Workshop has been upgraded. A license purchase agreement has been signed with BASF for the implementation of a modern automated process control system. As a result of the production process of phthalic anhydride, maleic anhydride was extracted by the waste water and its import was discontinued.


The Company was renamed from "Gavril Genov" to "Orgachim" EOOD – a single owner limited liability company. Two years later, it became a single owner joint-stock company, namely “Orgachim” EAD.


The Company has been privatized and fully managed by the private capital. The majority shareholder being Whitebeam Holdings Limited headquartered in Malta and owned by Policolor, Romania.

The store network in the country has been gradually equipped with Orgachim’s tinting systems allowing tinting of interior and exterior paints and varnishes.


Important structural changes have been initiated and aimed at the optimization in the field of production, trade and service activities.
The production facilities have been renovated; a new automated production line for water-dispersion paints has been installed, including an automatic filling system.


The appearance of the LEKO Brand has been completely modified.
The idea was to enable the consumers to easily identify the LEKO branded products, to make them more accessible, providing more information in a clear and accurate manner that could be seen at a glance on the packaging.
