We're excited about this addition to the ChromaScape family and our ability to provide even greater technical expertise in a variety of applications to our respective customers."

"Ron and I are greatly pleased to join forces with the deep bench of wonderful and talented people throughout all of ChromaScape," commented Joe Lynch, Greenville Colorants' president and chief executive officer. Ron Weiss, Greenville Colorants' chairman, added "The natural synergy between our two dyed-in-the-wool, colour-to-the-core companies becomes more obvious and gratifying every day."

ChromaScape's current investors, management team, Weiss and Lynch all invested to complete the transaction. The two will join the ChromaScape executive leadership team.
