We are pleased to announce that DCL Corporation has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Sun Chemical’s plant in Bushy Park, South Carolina, USA. This acquisition includes the production and sales of the perylene and quinacridone product portfolio, as well as additional products that fall under the color indexes for Pigment Yellow 139, Red 188, and Black 7. The anticipated closing of the acquisition is July 31, 2021.
Adding this high-performance pigment portfolio (manufactured in the USA) to DCL’s established platform and global operations is a complementary acquisition for DCL, a global leader in color pigments and dispersions for the coatings, plastics and ink industries. This business is a strong strategic fit for the DCL portfolio and our customers.
We will have more information over the coming weeks on the transition of the business from Sun Chemical. DCL is committed to continuing to serve our customers with high quality, reliable supply and will ensure the business is integrated without disruption to our global customers, present and future.
