, a multinational pigment producer, announced that it substantially increased manufacturing capacities at its Indian workshops during the third quarter of 2020.
“The capacity increases were at a number of our factories covering wide-ranging technologies such as phthalocyanines, metal toners, but especially Azos," CEO Phillip Myles said. "India is successfully leading global markets with phthalocyanine pigments, but its market share in Azo pigments is much smaller, limited by available capacities and suitable technologies.
"Our recent investments are only a steppingstone in anticipation of our new Azo factory that will commence manufacture in Sarigam in 2021," the CEO continued. "When our combined facilities will show Colourscapes as having one of the largest capacities to produce Azo pigments in India.
"Our program to increase capacities is to cater to our fast sales growth internationally, as in parallel we took to India some special pigment technologies based on our decades of experience serving our global clients," Myles added.
"Our products are appreciated for their market-leading characteristics in application, but also by their high levels of regulatory compliance to global standards, we have so far established sales in 24 countries," he concluded.
