Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 12:55 pm

Effective July 1, Columbian Chemicals Company (Marietta, GA) changed its name to Birla Carbon USA. Aditya Birla Carbon (Mumbai, India) acquired Columbian Chemicals in 2011, and the name change is part of a long-term strategy to bring all of the company’s carbon black operations under the single identity and brand of Birla Carbon. All of Columbian Chemicals global operations also have changed over to the Birla Carbon name, including subsidiaries in Canada, China, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, and South Korea. After the name change, Birla Carbon USA will continue to operate in its current structure, and all contacts will remain unchanged; there has been no change in ownership or management. Columbian Chemicals was founded in 1921.

In addition, all of Birla’s global carbon black operations will now be consolidated under the Birla Carbon brand, as follows:

  • Alexandria Carbon Black Company S.A.E in Egypt is now Birla Carbon Egypt S.A.E.
  • SKI Carbon Black (India) Private Limited (formerly Hi-Tech Carbon) in India will change its name to Birla Carbon India Private Limited (proposed)
  • Thai Carbon Black Public Co. Ltd. in Thailand is now Birla Carbon Thailand Public Co. Ltd.

Here is the press release.
