Archroma Expected to Close Acquisition of Huntsman Textile Effects
Archroma announced that it has secured all regulatory approvals required to complete the acquisition of the Textile Effects business from Huntsman Textile Effects.
Both parties expect the transaction, which was first announced on Aug. 9, 2022, to close on Feb. 28, 2023.
Archroma is a portfolio company of U.S.-based private investment firm SK Capital Partners.

Dohmen, a specialist in coloration for automotive textiles.
Heike van de Kerkhof, Archroma Group's CEO, commented: “We are very excited to see this acquisition nearing completion. I am deeply grateful to the project teams of Archroma and Huntsman who are preparing for a smooth transition for our employees and partners. After closing, we will be able to bring together our expert teams and highly complementary product portfolios to offer our customers and brand partners the high performance they expect, whilst respecting natural resources and the planet.”
