Americhem has made acquisitions over the years to continue building upon our solid foundation of knowledge and expertise by growing our capabilities, global reach, and talented teams. This strategy has allowed us to better service our customers and provide more than a product, but optimum value.

With 30 years of experience, Controlled Polymers is located in Denmark and supplies sustainable polymeric solutions to some of the largest healthcare OEMs in the world.
The consolidation of Vi-Chem Corporation has created a broad portfolio of products for Americhem customers. Vi-Chem has built a leadership position as a supplier of specialty engineered TPE and PVC compounds in the automotive industry. Their headquarters in Grand Rapids encompasses 170,000 square feet.
The acquisition of Prescient Color Limited complements Americhem’s position in the global synthetic fiber market and expands its geographic reach in a high growth region. Based in Pune, India, Prescient is a leading Indian producer of high-end masterbatches in several attractive niche applications, including synthetic fibers.
Americhem first acquired Infinity Compounding and shortly after, acquired LTL Color Compounders. Following these two acquisitions, Americhem merged the two new acquisitions together and made Infinity LTL. As part of Americhem’s recent rebranding, Infinity LTL has now become Americhem Engineered Compounds, which manufactures and sells custom compounded, engineering grade, polymer composites to meet the demands of customer applications.
Americhem's most recent acquisition, Controlled Polymers, has seamlessly integrated with Americhem Engineered Compounds by blending the companies’ product lines together to create a full range of offerings for the medical plastics industry. Their products complement Americhem Engineered Compounds’ specialized portfolio in medical devices and healthcare applications with Controlled Polymers’ worldwide experience in the hearing aid industry.
