Pantone Clariant Team To Provide Color Development Tools, Services

Carlstadt, N.J.-based color standards provider Pantone Inc. and the Textile Business of Clariant International Ltd., a Switzerland-based colorant and chemical manufacturer, have formed a partnership to develop new technology, tools and services to aid color development specialists in the fashion and home furnishings industries.

Pantone will contribute its color and trend know-how to the effort, while Clariant will supply its worldwide network of colorant and application technology experts. Users of the 1,925-color Pantone® Fashion + Home Color System will have access to Clariant’s expertise, enabling them to match any color in the system accurately and efficiently, and reduce color development times and related management costs by half or more.

“There is a great deal of synergy between Pantone and Clariant that enables us to dramatically improve the color development process with a variety of new tools, technologies and support services,” said Lisa Herbert, executive vice president, Pantone. “Through this partnership, we are now able to provide tools and services for every aspect of the design process from inspiration through production, empowering our customers to maintain the integrity of their creative vision.”

“Clariant’s technical expertise makes us the best company in the industry to provide true, accurate matches to Pantone Colors,” said Peter Piringer, head of Clariant’s Textile, Leather & Paper Division. “This means that today’s top name brands and retailers save money and critical time in the color development cycle.”
