Atul Ltd is pleased to announce a JV between Atul Ltd, India & M. Dohmen, Switzerland in the field of Textile Dyes.

MD has now become a 50:50 JV between M Dohmen GmbH & Co KG and Atul. Thus MD is now strong in both cellulosic and synthetic dyes and will offer a complete range of dyes and hence can provide a total solution to the customers. While Atul will offer to its customers in India and certain other markets not reached by MD currently the entire range of MD products comprising automotive, wool, polyamide and other dyes and textile chemicals, MD will be able to service its customers with the vat, sulphur, reactive and other dyes of Atul Colors.

This partnership also brings a significant increase in synthesis and research capacity to the fore and is expected to substantially strengthen the competitive advantage of the company and significantly enhance its customer focus, relationships and servicing.

Atul Colors has an excellent reputation for the highest order of quality of its products in the international markets.

M Dohmen SA (MD) is acknowledged as an innovative synthetic dyes company, providing integrated solutions especially for automotive and polyamide / wool applications apart from its recent foray into other industrial dye applications such as paper, wood and plastic.

It has a turnover of around US$75 million and is headquartered in Switzerland with manufacturing facilities in Germany, South Korea, and Switzerland and having subsidiary companies in major textile markets of China, Germany, Italy, South Korea, Turkey and the USA.
