Archromahas officially inaugurated its new Global Competence Center for Whiteness in Prat, Spain, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The Center further establishes Archroma as a global whiteness leader and underlines Archroma’s ambition to bring new, innovative whiteness and brightness solutions to the specialty paper and packaging markets.
Whiteness and brightness solutions for paper can be achieved with optical brightening agents complemented with shading dyes and pigments. The new Global Competence Center for Whiteness is therefore ideally located in Prat, where Archroma has major OBA (Optical Brightening Agent) and colorant manufacturing plants, recently extended with additional tetrasulfonated OBA production.
With this, Archroma confirms its unwavering commitment to OBA and the packaging and paper industries. The investment is the second step of a development plan started with the above mentioned OBA plant extension, with further investments to come.
The Global Competence Center for Whiteness team will work in close collaboration with Archroma’s innovation organization and the sales teams around the globe, ensuring point-on market relevance of new solutions and innovations, both in terms of performance and sustainability.
Archroma is a global leader in color and specialty chemicals towards sustainable solutions.
