Ampacet acquires Aussie firm

US-based colour/additive masterbatch supplier Ampacet Corporation has entered into definitive agreements to acquire Allied Color and Additives (ACA), headquartered in Mitcham, Australia. ACA specialises in colour and functional additive masterbatch for the Australian and New Zealand markets. Closing of the acquisition is currently anticipated to occur in July.

"We are delighted to be moving forward with bringing the capabilities of Allied Color into our fold,'" says Ampacet President/CEO Robert DeFalco. "Continued expansion in the Asia-Pacific region has long been part of our growth strategy."

Privately-held ACA employs 40 and operates manufacturing facilities in both Australia and New Zealand. "This acquisition will serve to further strengthen the high level of products and services ACA customers have come to expect over the years," says Anthony Sewell, Allied Managing Director. "Ampacet's commitment to product innovation and customisation, as well as unprecedented customer service, have long been our mission. Ampacet excels in those areas and our customers will welcome Ampacet's commitment to their success."

With 22 manufacturing sites located in 15 countries, Ampacet offers a broad range of custom colour, special effect, black, white and speciality additive masterbatches for moulding and a multitude of other processes and applications. Headquartered in Tarrytown, N.Y., Ampacet employs more than 1,900 people worldwide and operates technical and colour development centres and manufacturing sites throughout the Americas, Asia and Europe.
