Parsippany, NJ – September 8, 2020 – Sun Chemical and its parent company, DIC Corporation, have acquired Seller Ink Industria e Comércio de Tintas e Vernizes, a specialty inks and coatings manufacturer based in São Paulo, Brazil.

With over 25 years of experience, Seller Ink has a strong market presence in both the security ink and the metal decorating markets. With the acquisition of the Brazilian-based company, Sun Chemical wants to increase its specialty inks and coatings offering in Latin America and obtain a local manufacturing platform for security inks.
