iD Additives opens new colourants and additives business
iD Additives Inc., a North American supplier of additives including foaming agents, UV stabilizers, purging compounds, and other products to the plastics industry, has opened a new division for the production of liquid colourants and additives.
Called iD LiquiD Systems, the division is located in Flint, Tex., and is being run by Brian Cochran, a veteran of the colourant industry. Cochran has held positions as president, senior plastics engineer and consultant at Britec Solutions Inc.; president and founder of Polytech Color and Compounding Inc.; and sales/technical manager for Marco Color Laboratory.
“Expanding into liquid colors made sense for our company at this time,” said Nick Sotos, president of iD Additives, which is headquartered in LaGrange, Ill. “We see it as a real growth area and having an industry expert like Brian has already helped us make great strides towards creating products our customers want and need.”
iD LiquiD Systems will distribute to the North American market from the Texas facility. Specialty products offered by the division will include colour foam and liquid colour delivery systems.
