USA – IMCD N.V., a leading distributor of specialty chemicals and food ingredients, has completed the integration of specialty chemicals distributor, Horn into its IMCD US operations.
Horn was acquired by IMCD in August 2018 and its integration completes the company’s transition into one IMCD US organization with dedicated market focus.
Operating coast-to-coast, IMCD said that its US technical sales team offers a robust product portfolio with representation of leading global suppliers.
“With the full integration of HORN, IMCD has created an industry-leading distribution channel, well-positioned for further growth in the US,” said Marcus Jordan, President, IMCD Americas.
“Operating as one unified team, we provide our suppliers and customers with coast-to-coast coverage and expertise through our enhanced talent pool of market-driven experts.
“Having complementary values of entrepreneurship, transparency and expertise, IMCD is committed to building on Horn’s decades-long reputation of service excellence and expertise.”
IMCD made its US debut in 2015 and has since acquired and integrated five specialty chemical distributors – MF Cachat, Mutchler, Bossco Industries, LV Lomas and now Horn.
By completing the full integration of California-based HORN, IMCD has established itself as a US leader in specialty chemicals and ingredients distribution with the distinction of having a national footprint as one company.
As part of Horn’s integration, IMCD has made major investments in digitalization, application laboratory expansion, recruitment of additional technical personnel and the implementation of IMCD’s global IT platforms.
The dutch ingredients supplier said that the move will further secure and uphold the company’s commitment in “delivering excellence and value through expertise.”
The former headquarters of Horn located in La Mirada, California, now serves as the Western US regional hub for IMCD.
IMCD US operations include 375 employees, five laboratories, more than 20 strategically located warehouses and five regional offices to complement and support its commercial and technical activities across the nation.
Key market-focused segments in the US include coatings, advanced materials, food and nutrition, animal nutrition and nutraceuticals among others.
