Our activities

AIME members are fine chemical companies, mostly active in the crop protection industry.

The molecules our members produce are the essential building blocks – intermediates or active ingredients- that help deliver the essential and optimal performance of the final crop protection product, thus ensuring increased farming yields and preventing plant and livestock diseases.

These building blocks are formulated and produced to cutting edge technology and according to highly technical specifications. They are often tailor-made and produced at relatively small volumes by our members who can deliver the specific chemical technology needed by the larger crop protection multinationals.

In addition, AIME members are crucial manufacturing partners for various industries such as automotive, polymer, paints and coatings. With our high-quality approach, we contribute positively to these industries’ premium products.
