Vertellus Specialities acquired the SBH business from Dow


On February 2, 2015, Vertellus (Mr. Richard Preziotti/CEO) closed on its previously announced acquisition of the Dow Chemical Company’s Sodium Borohydride (SBH) business.


The acquisition includes the manufacturing plant in Elma, Washington. Vertellus intends to maintain all the existing operations and quality standards that are currently in place. Customers can be assured that they will continue to receive product to the same quality standards as they have traditionally received.


Nomura Jimusho, Inc., will intensify its business activity on serving the pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals market by continuing to supply SBH and Vitride along with other specialty materials that Vertellus is producing in the Japanese market as Vertellus’s distributor.


Nomura Jimusho, Inc., has been selling SBH as the suppliers’ distributor over the past 20 years.


Back in 2009, Nomura Jimusho, Inc., became Vertellus’s Japanese distributor of their various specialty materials, and their pyridines and picolines (and their derivatives), and is well recognized in the market.


Vertellus and Nomura Jimusho expect to generate a great synergistic effect in the market better because the acquisition will significantly increase their ability to provide tailored solutions to the pharmaceutical and agriculture sector.
