Dalegip America Inc., which makes industrial pigment products, has entered into a contract with GAC to make pigments for U.S. markets. Manuel Rivadeneyra Díaz, president of Dalegip, says penetrating American markets has been impractical from the company's Mexican headquarters, just north of Mexico City.
"We tried to sell products directly from Mexico to the United States," Díaz says, but the delivery time and transportation costs for the hollow sphere plastic pigment products were not competitive. The specialty pigments are about 70% water.
