Archroma, a leading company in sustainable specialty chemicals and solutions and a portfolio company of U.S.-based private investment firm SK Capital Partners (SK Capital), has announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the ‘Textile Effects’ business from Huntsman. In this context, Archroma and Textile Effects will continue to serve customers together in the coming years. The closing of the transaction is subject to customary conditions and approvals and is expected to take place in the first half of 2023.

Archroma has been building a comprehensive portfolio of solutions to serve the emerging needs of the textile industry, through a series of mergers and acquisitions, as well as internal investments in R&D, manufacturing and service capabilities since its formation in 2013. It is stated that this combination with Textile Effects and the rich historical roots of Huntsman and Ciba Specialties will create a technology powerhouse that will include Archroma’s legacy heritages of Sandoz, Hoechst, Clariant, BASF and Dohmen that have held a prominent position in the textile industry for decades. Archroma and Textile Effects are also founding members of Sustainable Chemistry for the Textile Industry (SCTI), an alliance of leading chemical companies working to empower the textile and leather industries to apply sustainable, state-of-the-art chemistry solutions.
