Milliken & Company announces intent to acquire Borchers from The Jordan Company
Borchers is a global specialty chemicals company known for its high-performance coating additives and specialty catalyst solutions from The Jordan Company, L.P. (“TJC”). The acquisition is expected to close in January 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.
Additives for the coatings, inks and adhesives markets
Headquartered in Westlake, Ohio, Borchers carries a portfolio of additives for the coatings, inks and adhesives markets with a comprehensive range of cobalt-free driers, dispersants, rheology modifiers, wetting agents, polymerisation catalysts and adhesion promoters.
