IMCD establishes national U.S. footprint as One company with full integration of HORN
IMCD N.V. (“IMCD” or “Company”), a leading distributor of specialty chemicals and food ingredients, today announced that it has completed the integration of 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, the IMCD US technical sales team offers a robust product portfolio with representation of leading global suppliers.
IMCD made its U.S. debut in 2015 and has since acquired and integrated five specialty chemical distributors – M.F. Cachat, Mutchler, Bossco Industries, L.V. Lomas and now HORN. By completing the full integration of California-based HORN, IMCD has established itself as a U.S. 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 to further secure and uphold the company’s commitment in delivering excellence and value through expertise. The former headquarters of HORN now serves as the Western U.S. 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 dedicated to serving specialized markets across the nation. Key market-focused segments in the U.S. include coatings and construction, advanced materials, oil and gas, food and nutrition, animal nutrition, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and personal care.
