BALTIMORE, MD — The Terra Firma Company recently announced that it has been chosen by Himadri Carbon Black as its exclusive distributor for select end use markets in Northeastern, Southeastern and Southwestern United States effective Sept. 6.
“We are excited to partner with Terra Firma for the carbon black grades with applications in Plastics, Inks, Coatings, Wire & Cable,” says Anurag Choudhary, CEO of Himadri Speciality Chemical Ltd. “Terra Firma’s strong presence in multi-regional specialty chemicals has made it a natural choice for us. I am also pleased to share that we have undertaken significant capacity expansion of our specialty carbon facility. Our proven product line-up combined with Terra Firma’s partnership will make a compelling value proposition for U.S. companies while sourcing carbon black. I am sure that our exclusive partnership with Terra Firma will be a long and successful one.”
Himadri Carbon Black is a division of Himadri Specialty Chemical Ltd, a leading supplier of carbon-based products based in Kolkata, India. It is one of the few global companies with an integrated raw material base for carbon black, giving it a highly consistent feedstock for its wide range of specialty and commodity product grades.
“We are extremely pleased to have been chosen to represent Himadri across our entire twenty-four state geography — from Maine to New Mexico,” said David Behan, CEO of Terra Firma. “Given the current supply constraints of carbon black, we believe U.S. manufacturers will be excited to have a new source for their carbon black needs. Himadri, with its global operations and a broad portfolio of carbon black products is ideally positioned to support the North American market.”
