New trade regulations and COVID-19 are impacting the supply chain and forcing manufacturing companies to develop new sourcing strategies to avoid disruptions. As a result, many plastic manufacturers are switching to regional supply partners located in North America and Mexico.
For regional re-shoring to be a win-win business decision, cost and quality of products must be maintained. As a trusted industry leader, plastic processors are switching to Chroma Color to achieve the cost and quality they desire. Chroma’s extensive technical capabilities, geographically diverse manufacturing sites, market-specific expertise, and relentless pursuit of cost -effective innovative technologies brings immense value to their customers.
In 2008, Chroma Color launched the G2 Series colorant technology, and in 2018, G3 became available. The G-Series offers customers the highest pigment loaded custom colors in the industry with up to 30 percent cost-to-color reduction.
In 2019, Chroma Color launched UltraPET based on the G3 series. UltraPET has the highest pigment levels of any existing colorant technology that translates into lower coloring costs – without jeopardizing processing rates or pigment dispersion.
“In addition, Chroma Color has made many capital investments in the past five years in each of our six plants in the US. These investments include new equipment purchases, refurbishment of crucial equipment and assets, enhancements to lab capabilities, and a variety of structural upgrades,” states Bishop Beall, VP Sales & Business Development. “These investments have a positive impact on our bottom line, giving us more freedom to help control cost for our customers.”
To help reduce supply challenges for our customers during COVID-19, Chroma Color’s highly experienced procurement team is in constant communication with our raw material suppliers and service providers. Chroma Color also continually reviews contingency plans to ensure we deliver our customers’ quality products on schedule.
“We are confident with investments in new technology and our highly experienced team members we can assist other plastic processors with their re-shoring efforts and COVID supply chain challenges,” states Bishop Beall, VP Sales & Business Development. “We encourage producers to reach out to us to discuss your current color concentrate and additive package needs.”
