July 26, 2010

The merger of the two Altana divisions, which will be called Actega WIT, is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Actega Coatings and Sealants, a division of Altana, is combining the operations of two of its divisions, Actega WIT and Actega Radcure. Actega WIT, formerly Water Ink Technologies, is a producer of water based and UV flexo inks and coatings. Radcure provides UV specialty coatings and adhesives for a wide variety of converting applications.

Actega WIT, based in Lincolnton, NC, USA, maintains three production facilities in North Carolina and nine branches throughout the US and Canada. Actega Radcure has its headquarters and production facility in Wayne, NJ, USA.

“The integration of WIT and Radcure creates a dynamic organization with a broad range of products for printers and converters,” says Pat Hague, Actega WIT’s vice president of sales. “It will provide enhanced levels of service with an experienced technical group focused on technical support and market driven innovation in inks, coatings and adhesives.”

The combined operations will be called Actega WIT, and it is anticipated that the process of combining the two divisions should be completed by the end of the year.

Altana, the parent company, produces products in the specialty chemicals business. Its headquarters is in Wesel, Germany.
