ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: IMCD NV has acquired 100% of the outstanding shares of the Colombia-based ingredient distributor, Unired Quimicas SAS (Unired).

With an office in Bogota, Colombia, Unired distributes specialty chemicals and ingredients to the pharmaceutical, food and personal care markets. In 2018, Unired generated a revenue of $8 million and has approximately 15 employees. The company will be fully integrated with IMCD’s organisation in 2020.

Unired is an excellent fit with IMCD given its specialty focus, asset light business model and long-term relationships with leading suppliers. The acquisition supports the strategy of IMCD to become the leading global specialty chemicals distributor, providing expertise and knowledge-based formulation solutions to its customers.

“Following IMCD Americas’ acquisitions in the U.S., Canada and Brazil, this is an important next step for IMCD to enter the Colombian market and to expand our LATAM presence. Unired is a reputable pharmaceutical, food and personal care distributor and we very much look forward to working together to further develop our offering to both suppliers and customers in the region,” said Marcus Jordan, President of IMCD Americas.

“We are delighted to become part of IMCD as the acquisition immediately propels Unired into the future with a larger and more specialized team and added technical know-how,” added Oscar Clavijo, President of Unired.
