Vertellus acquires Pentagon Chemicals

The US specialty chemical company, Vertellus (Indianapolis, Indiana), has acquired the UK custom manfucturer, Pentagon Chemicals (Workington, Cumbria). The acquisition significantly expands Vertellus' manufacturing presence in the agrochemical and pharmaceutical sectors, the company points out. The businesses are said to have complementary chemical expertise. Pentagon's market leading position as a supplier of maleic anhydride derivatives complements Vertellus' alkenyl succinic anhydrides business, Vertellus notes.  The US company is the world's leading producer of pyridines and picolines, specialty pyridine derivatives and the insect repellent, DEET, the company adds.
