Rockwood Color Pigments & Services Division and W.R. Grace Construction Products have extended their alliance to jointly distribute Rockwood's Chameleon liquid color dosing system and concrete color products. Grace has represented Rockwood products and systems for North American ready mixed and precast concrete producers since July 2003.
Rockwood Color Pigments and W.R. Grace both share a commitment to satisfy the needs of the market by providing the best possible service and product supply capabilities, notes Rockwood Vice President of Marketing Nick Paris. The partnership has been successful in growing the decorative and architectural concrete color market since 2003. We look forward to continuing the relationship.
Under the new terms, Rockwood will expand direct marketing to the industry while Grace continues to service its existing client base and work with Rockwood on new sales opportunities. Expanding the distribution and service network for color products and dosing systems will enable both companies to support the widespread demand for colored concrete and systems in ready mixed and precast. Separate from the alliance, Rockwood continues to service concrete masonry, paver and roof tile producers, along with coloring system customers in coatings, plastics, and specialty industries.
