BALTIMORE — Himadri Carbon Black has chosen Terra Firma Co. as its exclusive distributor for select end-use markets in the Northeast, Southeast and Southwest United States effective Sept. 6, 2018.

Anurag Choudhary, CEO of Himadri Speciality Chemical Ltd., said, “We are excited to partner with Terra Firma for the carbon black grades with applications in plastics, inks, coatings, wire and cable. Terra Firma’s strong presence in multi-regional specialty chemicals has made it a natural choice for us. I am also pleased to share that we have undertaken significant capacity expansion of our specialty carbon facility. Our proven product line-up combined with Terra Firma’s partnership will make a compelling value proposition for U.S. companies while sourcing carbon black. I am sure that our exclusive partnership with Terra Firma will be a long and successful one.”

Himadri Carbon Black is a division of Himadri Specialty Chemical Ltd., a leading supplier of carbon-based products based in Kolkata, India. It is one of the few global companies with an integrated raw material base for carbon black, giving it a highly consistent feedstock for its wide range of specialty and commodity product grades.

David Behan, CEO of Terra Firma, commented, “We are extremely pleased to have been chosen to represent Himadri across our entire 24-state geography — from Maine to New Mexico. Given the current supply constraints of carbon black, we believe U.S. manufacturers will be excited to have a new source for their carbon black needs. Himadri, with its global operations and a broad portfolio of carbon black products, is ideally positioned to support the North American market.”
