Arxada, a leading global specialty chemicals business, has completed the merger with Troy Corp., a global leader in microbial control solutions and performance additives.
Announced on November 3, 2021, the combination creates a comprehensive and innovative offering in Arxada’s Microbial Control Solutions business, enabling the delivery of new solutions and value-added services to customers.
Troy is a global leader in the field of industrial preservation with broad expertise in paints and coatings, wood protection and preservation, home and personal care, plastics and textiles, energy, and metal working fluids.
Arxada will benefit from Troy’s technical expertise, customer relationships, and broad portfolio of performance products, as well as its long history of innovation, including the invention of 3-iodo propynyl butyl carbamate (IPBC). Troy brings five new production sites worldwide, four research and development centers, and about 650 employees, enhancing Arxada’s commercial presence across the globe.
The completion of the combination with Troy follows the acquisition of Enviro Tech Chemical Services, a category-leading manufacturer of proprietary and high-efficacy antimicrobial and biocidal products, announced on December 23, 2021.
“The completion of two strategic deals in our first six months as an independent company shows our commitment to strengthening our position as a partner of choice in microbial control through the addition of new applications and active ingredients to our portfolio,” said Marc Doyle, chief executive officer, Arxada. “We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues and look forward to building on our combined expertise to deliver new solutions and services to our customers.”
