Vercolos Pigments: New Start-up Importer And Distributor Of Pigments

Plastics industry veteran Marc Vanover founded Vercolos Pigments Inc.; a start-up pigment importer and distributor located in Belton, South Carolina. Vanover will also serve as president of the company. Previously, he held senior sales and technical director positions for PolyOne, MA Hanna Color, Techmer PM and Allied Color.

Vercolos Pigments has been appointed as the exclusive distributor of Vipul Organics of Mumbai, India, offering a full range of high performance organic pigments under the SunTone name. Added to this list are the ultramarine blue and chrome pigments from Vipul under the trade name Chromatherm.

Vercolos Pigments was founded in late 2021 and is engaged in the import, storage and distribution of pigments for the coatings, plastics and inks industries. Vanover disclosed that “Vercolos Pigments has signed an exclusive agreement covering North America to distribute the Vipul Organics line of pigments and pigment preparations. He is confident that Vercolos will quickly be recognized as the go-to service-driven company, focused on customer satisfaction and delivering extraordinary value with exceptional products. Vercolos Pigments begins to stock and distribute from its warehouse in Belton, South Carolina. With approximately 125,000 square feet of warehouse space, they are strategically located within a one-day shipping radius of 40% of coatings, plastics and ink processors in the United States.

Vanover added, “Building this company also provides an opportunity to really fill a niche market and fulfills one of my dreams of becoming retro-integrated. Getting this off the ground has been hard work, honest sweat and sheer determination. The knowledgeable staff at Vercolos Pigments operates a fully functional laboratory where they perform various comparative tests to assist each customer. Full containers, high quality and economical pigments have arrived in the USA and are on the water. The rapid consolidation of the pigment industry over the past two years has enabled the formation of mega-pigment suppliers. Historically, during market consolidations like this, companies will downsize, rationalize products and close manufacturing sites. Service will suffer and the customer will pay for it with higher prices creating a giant void for smaller, more nimble businesses to fill that space. Mark is convinced that Vercolos is the reliable supply partner you have been looking for.
