Vibrantz Technologies, a leading global provider of specialty chemicals and materials, today announced that effective June 1, 2022, it has acquired the colorant dispersion business of Transcor Indústria de Pigmentos e Corantes Ltda (Sao Paulo, Brazil). As part of the agreement, the Transcor colorant dispersion business, which includes a range of point-of-sale, in-plant and other dispersion systems, will become part of Vibrantz’s expanded Color Solutions business unit offering in Brazil and South and Central America. Transcor’s existing dry pigments business is not part of the acquisition and a purchase price was not disclosed.
“This acquisition is an exciting opportunity to grow our regional footprint in South and Central America,” said Scott Becker, president, Color Solutions, at Vibrantz. “The Transcor product line expands the diversity of the portfolio we can provide for customers of architectural paints, industrial coatings and other related markets. Our highest priority remains meeting and exceeding customer needs and expectations and we are committed to ensuring customers receive the same quality products and service during the transition.”
Transfer of the acquired product lines to Vibrantz’s South American facilities are expected to occur in the next six months. Until that time, Transcor will continue to produce the acquired product lines and provide customer support for customers on behalf of Vibrantz.
