Yorkshire Acquires C And K Colors' Textile Business

Yorkshire Group plc, Leeds, England, has purchased the global textile dyes and European industrial dyes businesses of Crompton & Knowles Colors Inc. (C&K Colors), Charlotte, N.C. Both the North and South American businesses of C&K Colors join Yorkshire Group’s Yorkshire Americas division.

With this purchase, Yorkshire is now the world’s fourth largest textile dye supplier and will be an important player in the acid dye market.

“As Yorkshire Group celebrates its 100th anniversary, we are delighted to add C&K Colors’ considerable benefits to our organization,” said Stephen Holland, president, Yorkshire Americas. “ This acquisition strengthens both Yorkshire Group and our new partners from C&K Colors, by providing our combined customers with a more comprehensive range of products and services.”

The purchase includes an office/laboratory/warehouse facility in Charlotte, N.C., which will become the Yorkshire Americas headquarters. Yorkshire will also acquire production facilities in Lowell, N.C.; Greenville, S.C.; Tertre, Belgium; and Oissel, France.
