As the global leader in color concentrates, functional additives, and custom polymer masterbatches for the plastics industry, we are proudly celebrating our 50th anniversary in the plastics industry.
With this important milestone, it is important to look back and reflect on the our growth. As a privately held company, we have benefitted from a supportive parent company, PMC Global, Inc. The backing from PMC over the past 50 years has allowed us to respond to both market changes and economic downturns, which have had national and international implications over the past several decades.
In 1964, Kamco Plastics was formed as a styrene compounding company that provided reprocessed color compounds for the plastics industry. Over the years, we expanded and grew to manufacture dry color, white concentrate, and other additives. Another milestone was in 1989 when the name officially changed to Plastics Color Corporation with locations in New Jersey, Illinois, and North Carolina at that time.
The 2000s marked continued growth with an additional facility in Nanjing, China, and key product innovation propelled us as a leading additives supplier. The most recent product developments include a line of anti-counterfeiting taggants, MiBatch, and the expansion of liquid color offerings through the LiquiSol carrier system. The company growth and product development over the past 50 years are influenced largely by growing market demand and customer innovation.
A key to our 50-year success is its ability to adapt to an ever-changing consumer-driven market. To support the continued growth of its business, we recently established a new leadership team and committed itself to a new quality statement. Our company will continue to focus on growth as it enters new markets, developing innovative color solutions for its customers.
Plastics Color built our reputation by creating a wide range of colors and additives. Now known as an innovative problem solver, we are staking our future on our ability to work with you at the earliest stage of development, to help you see the future for your products and to act as a trusted business advisor. As a global company with assets and facilities throughout the world, we are able to offer a wide range of distinctive opportunities and services.
