Vertellus acquires Jarchem to expand nature-based products

Vertellus, a manufacturer of specialty materials for various  consumer goods, food, agriculture and healthcare markets based in Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A., announced the acquisition  of Jarchem Innovative Ingredients, a global manufacturer and supplier of unique  specialty ingredients and nature-based products. 

With this acquisition, Vertellus expands its  offering of environmentally friendly ingredients and serves a growing global base of customers  in high-growth Specialty, Personal, Home and Health Care markets. 

Jarchem has a leading portfolio of proprietary, nature-based products that are increasingly  popular as consumers demand all-natural alternatives. Based in Newark, New Jersey, U.S.A., Jarchem  offers a range of alternatives for traditional esters, silicones and other products commonly  used in personal care, food and specialty industrial markets, providing cleaner, greener  formulations for its customers. Jarchem brings to Vertellus an expanded global base of long-standing customers and a long-tenured management team with substantial technical  expertise.  

“Jarchem’s high-quality portfolio of nature-based ingredients and products is an exciting  addition to Vertellus,” said John Van Hulle, CEO of Vertellus. “By extending our reach in high growth specialty and personal care markets, together we will better serve our customers. We  welcome the Jarchem team to the Vertellus family.”  

“The Jarchem team is thrilled to partner with Vertellus to bring our compelling product  portfolio to more customers around the world,” said Art Hein, managing director of Jarchem.  “As consumers increasingly seek natural, healthy alternatives to conventional products,  together our companies are well-positioned for long-term growth.” 

“This acquisition extends Vertellus’ strategic priority to further strengthen its portfolio of  innovative specialty ingredients,” said Thomas Chadwick, principal at Pritzker Private Capital, the private equity firm based in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A., which owns Vertellus.  “The combined company has an attractive position in high-growth markets and is poised for  continued, long-term success.”
