IMCD N.V. recently announced that it has completed the integration of HORN into its IMCD U.S. operations. HORN was acquired by IMCD in August 2018, and its integration completes the company’s transition into one IMCD U.S. organization. Operating coast-to-coast, the IMCD U.S. technical sales team offers a product portfolio with representation of leading global suppliers.
“With the full integration of HORN, IMCD has created an industry-leading distribution channel, well-positioned for further growth in the U.S.,” said Marcus Jordan, president of IMCD Americas. “Operating as one unified team, we provide our suppliers and customers with coast-to-coast coverage and expertise through our enhanced talent pool of market-driven experts. Having complementary values of entrepreneurship, transparency and expertise, IMCD is committed to building on HORN’s decades-long reputation of service excellence and expertise.”
IMCD made its U.S. debut in 2015 and has since acquired and integrated five specialty chemical distributors: M.F. Cachat, Mutchler, Bossco Industries, L.V. Lomas, and now HORN. As part of HORN’s integration, IMCD reports that it has made investments in digitalization, application laboratory expansion, recruitment of additional technical personnel, and the implementation of IMCD’s global IT platforms. The former California headquarters of HORN now serves as the Western U.S. regional hub for IMCD.
IMCD’s U.S. operations include 375 employees, five laboratories, more than 20 strategically located warehouses, and five regional offices. Key market-focused segments in the U.S. include coatings and construction, advanced materials, oil and gas, food and nutrition, animal nutrition, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and personal care.
