Vertellus Expands North American Anhydrides Capabilities with Acquisition of Bercen Chemicals

Vertellus announced today that it has acquired Bercen Chemicals, a leading US supplier of alkyl succinic anhydrides and additives used in the fuel, lubricant, and paper industries.

“This acquisition expands the range of products that Vertellus is able to offer to the North American market” said Jim Elliott, General Manager of Vertellus’ Anhydrides & Specialties business. “The acquisition also provides us with a strong foundation to better serve the global fuel and lubricant additives market.”

This acquisition is extremely complementary with Vertellus’ current capabilities and the combined business is better positioned to service global customers. Bercen’s gulf coast location with rail access supports the growing fuel and lube additive market in North America. Pilot facilities will also support the scale-up of new technology, with blending capabilities in Singapore providing a platform to support the growing Asian market.

About Bercen Chemicals

Founded in 1958, Bercen - a division of Cranston Print Works, has provided customers with high quality chemical solutions for more than 60 years. Based in Denham Springs, Louisiana, Bercen supplies maleic anhydride derivatives for paper sizing and other industrial applications.
