Archroma’s heritage traces back to when Kern & Sandoz was established in 1886 in Basel to produce textile dyes. In 1995 Clariant was formed, as a spin-off from Sandoz, and in 1997 acquired the specialty chemicals business of Hoechst.
SK Capital acquired the then Textile Chemicals, Paper Specialties, and Emulsions businesses from Clariant Corporation in September 2013. The three divisions were combined into an integrated, market-focused, and collaborative company and renamed Archroma upon becoming an independent entity.
Through this direct lineage, Archroma has knowledge and experience of chemistry and industry spanning more than 120 years.
