The DCC is represented by over 70 local chemicals manufacturing companies in Durban and surrounding regions. As an industry-driven initiative, the cluster draws on the leadership and expertise of individuals from this broad range of chemicals member firms, thereby using it to identify and address a wide variety of challenges confronting the chemicals industry.


We welcome membership enquiries from chemicals manufacturing companies with operations in KwaZulu-Natal, as well as local non-chemicals manufacturing companies that can identify and are aligned with the objectives of the DCC.

Access to all of our programmes are included in your membership fee, and we offer preferential rates to small and medium sized businesses, based on turnover and employment figures.

Current members include chemicals manufacturers from across the predominant value chains in operation in KZN. These value chains are petro-chemicals and gas; water treatment; coatings, inks, adhesives and dyes; resins and polymers; pulp and paper.
