The transaction is aligned with Nitro Quimica’s internationalization plan, enabling the expansion of its product portfolio and strengthening its participation in the North American market.

Leading market for printing inks

The region will have teams fully dedicated to our customers’ businessess and technical needs, which gives our company a major competitive advantage" said Marcos Cruz, Nitro Quimica Chief Executive Officer.

Cruz also emphasises that investments will be maintained in order to increase production capacity and launch new products. "By the end of 2016, we plan to launch solutions for segments of printing inks, nail polishes, wood processing and automotive refinishing in the United States," added the executive.
