About CIC
N.V. Consolidated Industries Corporation (CIC) is situated near the southern end of Paramaribo, the capital city of Suriname. We are a publicly traded company that was established in 1967 and are part of the VSH United group of companies. We commenced our commercial activities with the production and distribution of powder detergents for household and industrial use. The initial equipment included a spray tower, a steam boiler and a box-filling machine. The potential for success in different detergent types was quickly realized and we expanded to include a wide variety of liquid detergents, insect repellent and plastic packaging materials.

In January 2010 replacement investments in the plastic- and liquid equipment had resulted in new production facilities, which further readied us for regional expansion.

In 2012, emphasis was placed on our continued expansion in export markets and investing in research and development. Since then we have successfully re-launched and expanded many of our brand portfolios and have started exporting to 4 new destinations.

With just over 115 employees we proudly produce and market Ozon, Sun, Klinol, Witboi, Tropical Bush and Lysol products for our customer base in Suriname and most regional markets.
