In 1975, Mr Joseph Kuchar saw the opportunity to secure the Australian market for chlorinated benzene products and a plant was purchased in Brisbane. Until 1979 para-Dichlorobenzene was imported by Recochem in a form that required minimal processing, but with the sophisticated plant in Brisbane gained the capability to produce para-Dichlorobenzene and ortho-Dichlorobenzene in sufficient quantities to meet the entire Australian demand. Recochem, because of this production facility, dominated the Australian market as a supplier of dichlorobenzene and has continued to do so throughout the subsequent years.
