November 9, 2009
SPARTANBURG, SC – Milliken & Co. has announced the acquisition of the assets of Rebus Inc., a North American provider of pigment and additive dispersions for the thermoset plastics and high-performance industrial coatings markets. The acquisition will enable Milliken, a supplier of high-technology content colorants and additives to the global plastics and household care industries, to broaden its portfolio and offer customers a convenient source for differentiated colorants. In particular, the move will allow thermoset and coatings manufacturers in fast-growing markets such as Asia-Pacific to leverage Milliken’s global presence, technological expertise and supply-chain efficiencies.
Milliken will continue to operate Rebus’s existing manufacturing facility in Aston, PA, and will work diligently to ensure a smooth transition and to prevent any interruption to the supply of products to the market.
