Sartomer Company and Cray Valley realign business units

Article Type: Industry news From: Pigment & Resin Technology, Volume 39, Issue 3

Global specialty chemicals manufacturer Sartomer Company and sister company Cray Valley, both part of Total’s chemical branch, are realigning their organizations to better synchronize products and services with customers and markets. The changes become effective January 1, 2010.

Sartomer’s photocure business will operate as a new business entity, Sartomer USA, LLC. Sartomer will drive market growth through more focused activity in UV/EB markets and non-rubber markets. Sartomer president Marcel de Wolf will continue his global management responsibilities.

A new business unit was created called Hydrocarbon Specialty Chemicals (HSC), which will operate as Cray Valley USA, LLC. This unit will handle the Norsolene and Wingtack tackifying resins, along with Poly BD, Ricon, Krasol, SMA, SR, and Saret rubber coagents, which were previously marketed under the Sartomer name. Cray Valley will continue to market the company’s hydrocarbon line as it has done since June 2007. Charles-Henri Robert will be the president of the new HSC business unit.

The units will be headquartered in Exton, PA, at the following addresses:
