DyStar Acquires Texanlab; DyStar Colours, Coatema Collaborate

India-based DyStar has finalized its acquisition of India-based accredited third-party quality control testing services company Texanlab Laboratories Pvt. Ltd. The company joins Color Solutions International, Expert Solutions and Ecology Solutions as a member of the DyStar Textile Services team. Ullhas Nimkar has been named ambassador emeritus and advisor of Texanlab.

"With the newly relocated and upgraded flagship laboratory in Navi Mumbai, we are confident that we are better positioned to service international retailers and brands who are sourcing for top quality and ecologically friendly garments in India," said Simon Collinson, director of DyStar Textile Services. "Moreover, we are glad to announce that Mr. Nimkar will continue his service with us, and I am sure his experience and wealth of knowledge in the field of textile testing will support and help the development of our future expansion plans."

In other company news, Germany-based DyStar Colours Deutschland GmbH has signed an agreement with Germany-based Coatema Coating Machinery GmbH -- a manufacturer of coating, printing and laminating technology. Under the agreement, the two companies will collaborate to develop denim application technologies for DyStar's Indigo Vat 40% Solution. They also will cooperate on minimal application technologies for prereduced indigo, indigo and vat dyes; and other effects chemicals for yarns, fabrics and other substrates.

"With DyStar and Coatema, the technology leaders for indigo and coating machines have got together," said Günther Widler, head of denim technology, DyStar. "This offers the unique opportunity to create new, never-before-seen denim effects."
