Luxembourg-based Global carbon black supplier Orion Engineered Carbons S.A. recently announced that it has acquired an acetylene carbon black supplier.

“SN2A brings us a skilled team, proven technology and an operating plant,” said Corning F. Painter, Chief Executive Officer of Orion Engineered Carbons.

“This bolt-on acquisition is a perfect fit with Orion’s focus on Specialty Carbon Blacks. We look forward to welcoming the SN2A team to Orion and bringing Acetylene Black into our portfolio.”

Orion supplies a variety of carbon blacks, including specialty blacks that the company says enhance the performance of polymers, paints and coatings; inks and toners; and adhesives and sealants.

The company says that it hopes the acquisition will broaden its position in a number of “attractive markets.”

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
