IMCD completes integration of Horn into its U.S. operations
IMCD N.V, distributor of specialty chemicals and food ingredients, has completed the integration of E.T. Horn into its IMCD U.S. operations. Horn was acquired by IMCD in August 2018 and its integration completes the company’s transition into one IMCD U.S. organisation with dedicated market focus. Operating coast-to-coast, the IMCD U.S. 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 the California-based specialty chemicals distributor with a focus on coatings, construction, plastics, personal care, human food & nutrition, animal nutrition, nutraceuticals and other specialties, 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 the distributor’s integration, IMCD has made major investments in digitalisation, 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 specialised 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.
