U.S. based Wikoff Color Corp., a manufacturer of high performance printing inks and coatings for the graphic arts industry, has completed the acquisition of Verti Produtos Químicos, São Paulo, Brazil. The transaction closed on November 30, 2017. Verti was established in 2006 when its three founders, with their wide range of experience in the packaging and graphic arts industries, decided to capitalize on their knowledge and capabilities by providing technical service and products.
“Not only does Verti bring a wealth of expertise in the packaging and label printing markets, but their core values are also closely aligned with the employee-owners of Wikoff Color,” commented Geoff Peters, President and CEO of Wikoff Color. “Verti’s focus on technical support and customer relationships will complement our long history of providing outstanding products and services to our customers. Looking ahead we are excited about the synergies that exist between Verti and Wikoff Color and the new opportunities for growth that our combined resources will be positioned to pursue throughout Brazil and South America.”
“We are happy to be joining the Wikoff Color team,” said Gilberto L. Mosca, Verti Managing Partner. “We believe there is an excellent fit between the cultures of our two companies, and that Wikoff’s commitment to superior customer service and high quality products is a great match with our approach to the market. We also believe that Wikoff’s global footprint and technical expertise will help us grow more quickly throughout South America.”
