DCL Corporation announced that it has acquired Sun Chemical’s manufacturing facility in Goose Creek, SC, USA. This acquisition includes the production and sales of the perylene and quinacridone product portfolios, along with select other specialty products.
Perylenes and quinacridones are specialty pigment families providing the highest performance, especially high chromaticity, high durability, high heat stability and transparency for the most demanding applications, including the automotive, industrial coatings and engineered plastics markets. The acquisition closed on July 31, 2021.
Adding this high-performance pigment portfolio and a US manufacturing base to DCL’s established platform and global operations is a complementary acquisition for DCL.
“We are excited about this acquisition, which is an excellent strategic fit for DCL. It expands our broad pigment portfolio with additional high-performance pigments, so DCL can bring more value to our customers,” said Chuck Herak, DCL’s CEO. “We are pleased to add the quality manufacturing facility at Goose Creek to our network, and we welcome these new employees to the DCL team.”
