The parent company has been seeking growth through acquisitions of companies. Earlier this year, Blue Star acquired a refinery and a polypropylene (PP) unit from Tianjin Petrochemical, a Sinopec subsidiary. Both units were understood to be making losses before the acquisition and have small capacities.
Haohua is a manufacturer of organic fluoro rubber and silicon rubber which are used in mechanical hydraulic systems, lubricating systems, bearings and driving seals because of their heat resistant properties, raw materials such as calcium carbide, barium and strontium salts, and other products including fertilisers, pesticides, fine chemicals and chemical equipment.
