Alkim was established in Istanbul in 1948 under the name Alkali Mining and started its operation in mining and chemistry sectors. The company, which served the paper industry for many years by selling sodium sulfate, established a printing and coated paper plant in 1996 in Kemalpaşa, Izmir, taking into account the increasing paper deficit. The facility started production in 1998 with a capacity of 55,000 tons/year. Nowadays Alkim Kagit (Alkim Paper) produces woodfree offset, special papers, copy paper and office papers.
