Iran has made great progresses in different industries in the post-Revolution years so much so that, in late July, an Iranian official announced that Iranian experts at Jam petrochemical company designed and produced 1,000 industrial petrochemical parts which had earlier been imported from foreign states.
"The powerful experts of Jam petrochemical company in Asalouyeh indigenized 1,000 industrial petrochemical parts in cooperation with other Iranian firms," Director of Jam Company for Commercial Affairs Saeed Shirdel said.
He added that the company will indigenize 20,000 petrochemical parts in the next two years, and said an Iranian firm has for the first time manufactured turbo-expander shaft for Jam Company.
Iran had earlier announced plans to attain self-sufficiency in the production of parts and equipment for its petrochemical plants.
Jalil Sobhani, the managing director of the Supplying Petrochemical Industries Parts, Equipment and Chemical Engineering Co. (SPEC), said in 2014 that Iranian petrochemical experts and engineers had put in effort gaining self-sufficiency in the field, and that Iran planned to supply its petrochemical plants with home-made parts and equipment in the pursuing five years.
Sobhani said the SPEC planned to procure all the equipment and necessary parts from the domestic market and to attain self-sufficiency in the sector by relying on Iranian experts.
