McHenry, IL: Chroma Color Corporation has just completed a yearlong expansion and over a $1 million investment in the Leominster, MA manufacturing operation. These investments included: significant structural upgrades, new compounding lines, a dust collection system, new state of the art color development laboratory, along with improvements to both warehousing and office environments.
Tom Bolger, CEO, Chroma Color Corporation stated, “As we continue to strengthen our position in the color concentrate marketplace, we determined manufacturing site upgrades would be necessary to serve our customers growing need for technically strong partners. Today, I am proud to say Chroma Leominster has become one of our flagship sites for our customers and a true manufacturing center of excellence.”
Because of the new investments and capacity expansion in Leominster, Chroma Color Corporation is pursuing opportunities to better serve our customers across the entire manufacturing footprint. Earlier today, representatives of Chroma Color Corporation met with employees at the Clinton, MA facility to inform them that the Clinton operations will be relocating to the improved Leominster manufacturing site.
A majority of current Clinton employees will be given the opportunity to continue their careers with Chroma. The Leominster facility is just 10 miles from the Clinton site. Transition assistance will be made available for those few employees not offered a transfer.
“This move is intended to streamline operations and better serve customers by integrating key operations into existing manufacturing facilities where we have more advanced lab and technical equipment leveraging robust analytical and formulation resources. The value we can bring to our customers will be strengthened by these improved efficiencies and capabilities,” said Tom Bolger, CEO, Chroma Color Corporation.
“Because key personnel, equipment, and historical knowledge will be transferring to Leominster operations, we anticipate a seamless transition for current customers served out of Clinton. Detailed transition plans are in place and expected to be completed by year-end,” continued Tom Bolger.
