HISTORY AND CULTURE
Americhem was founded in 1941 as a manufacturer’s representative that sold fillers and additives to the rubber industry. In 1959, we began manufacturing color concentrates, and we’ve been at the forefront of innovation ever since.
75 years later, our solutions are displayed everywhere, from your home to store shelves. Now one of the largest custom color concentrate manufacturers in the world, we bring polymer products to life around the globe. Through generations of expansion, we have stayed true to our service foundation with groundbreaking technology, a single-minded pursuit of quality and total responsiveness to each customer’s unique needs.
We pride ourselves on solving highly complex technical problems and delivering a level of service far beyond expectations. Our custom solutions are created by becoming fully immersed in each customer's business, goals and vision. Working as an extension of our customers’ workforces, our collaborative, value engineering approach is evident in each step of every project by:
Serving as customer consultants by drawing from an established knowledge base with technical acumen and product expertise gained through years of work in the lab, production and field service.
Offering customer training in color theory, feeder operation, processing methods, performance technology and more throughout the development process.
Conducting tests with on-site process simulation equipment that mimics our customers’ own processes and uses their raw materials, methods and conditions to quickly and cost-effectively test the final product to get it right the first time.
Setting and continually refining industry standards, determining end-product testing methods, and influencing regulations on end-products through our participation in industry organizations.
We look to the future for continued innovation and new solutions to help our customers succeed.
