NOTE 1 - BUSINESS AND OPERATIONS OF THE COMPANY
Trecora Resources, formerly Arabian American Development Company, (the “Company”) was organized as a Delaware corporation in 1967. The Company’s principal business activities are the manufacturing of various specialty petrochemical products, specialty waxes and providing custom processing services. The Company owns 33% of a Saudi Arabian joint stock company, Al Masane Al Kobra Mining Company (“AMAK”) (see Note 11) and approximately 55% of the capital stock of a Nevada mining company, Pioche Ely Valley Mines, Inc. (“PEVM”), which does not conduct any substantial business activity but owns undeveloped properties in the United States.
The Company’s petrochemical operations are primarily conducted through a wholly-owned subsidiary, Texas Oil and Chemical Co. II, Inc. (“TOCCO”). TOCCO owns all of the capital stock of South Hampton Resources, Inc. (“SHR”) and Trecora Chemical, Inc. (“TC”). SHR owns all of the capital stock of Gulf State Pipe Line Company, Inc. (“GSPL”). SHR owns and operates a specialty petrochemical product facility near Silsbee, Texas which manufactures high purity hydrocarbons used primarily in polyethylene, packaging, polypropylene, expandable polystyrene, poly-iso/urethane foams, Canadian tar sands, and in the catalyst support industry. TC owns and operates a facility located in Pasadena, Texas which manufactures specialty waxes and provides custom processing services. These specialty waxes are used in the production of coatings, hot melt adhesives and lubricants. GSPL owns and operates pipelines that connect the SHR facility to a natural gas line, to SHR’s truck and rail loading terminal and to a major petroleum pipeline owned by an unaffiliated third party.
On October 1, 2014, TOCCO, a Texas corporation, acquired (“Acquisition”) 100% of the Class A common stock of SSI Chusei, Inc. (“SSI”), a Texas corporation and leading manufacturer of specialty synthetic waxes and custom toll processing services in Pasadena, Texas. On November 15, 2014, SSI’s name was changed to TC. In May 2016 TC acquired B Plant, an adjacent facility.
