EdgeChem has been at the forefront of Automotive refinishing, furniture and Industrial finishes and decorative finishes in Jamaica for almost a decade. Our lines of products are well known for quality, consistency and performance. From Automotive coatings to wood sanding sealers we’ve got it all. Our products are designed and formulated to attain the highest international standards, and able to compete with the best in the world.

EdgeChem, founded in 1990, is a wholly Jamaican-owned company. EdgeChem aims to put science to work by constant research into improving our products while maintaining cost efficient and quality proven products. Acting on its commitment to respond to the needs of its ever growing customer base EdgeChem, in 1996, entered into a technical partnership with Akzo Nobel – the largest paint firm in the world.

This allowed for EdgeChem’s successful penetration into the high-end auto-refinishers market, while Akzo Nobel’s products were marketed under its own brand – Sikkens. EdgeChem, based on customer feedback, then developed its own local brand of automotive refinishers – AUTOMEL & AUTOMEL SUPER. Our ability to adapt and provide client-based painting solutions has pushed EdgeChem to become one of the Caribbean’s leading paint companies. But in the face of constant change, innovation and discovery, our core values have remained constant – a commitment to quality, client-focused solutions, health and safety, and the best value for money. In 1998 EdgeChem expanded its distribution network into the Caribbean exporting to Barbados, Antigua, Trinidad, Belize, St. Lucia and Dominica.
