OUR STORY

Dyes for a colorful world.

Our company was founded in Forlì in 1991 by Alessandro Bosi who, together with four partners, decided to separate from a similar business established by his father and continue to to create his own independent company. In this way Cromatos was born, an Italian company based in Forlì, dedicated to the production, formulation and marketing of dyes, pigments and chemical products for industry.

The first Cromatos Head Office was established in 1992, with fewer than ten employees, dedicated mainly to the resale of chemical products for industry. The rapid growth of the business, and the increase in the number of customers, required the construction of a new Head Office in 1995. The new building not only expanded the warehouse area, it also, more importantly, increased laboratory space and enhanced its functionality. At this time the number of laboratory technicians for the testing of incoming and finished materials was also increased.

During this period, in order to ensure continuity of supply of product and quality to customers, the need to establish reliable relationships with selected suppliers of raw materials was identified. For this reason, Cromatos decided to enter into two major joint ventures with production partners in China and India.

In 2005 the company turnover exceeded 10 million Euros and Cromatos was recognised as an established supplier in the field of industrial dyeing.
To provide its customers with more timely support in the textile field, in 2006 Cromatos founded the company “Ausicrom” in Prato, specialized in the field of auxiliary products, and in 2008 the company acquired “Chimica Tessile”, an historical company strongly linked to Prato’s textile dyeing industry.

In 2008, Cromatos opened a subsidiary in Sweden (“Cromatos Nordic AB”) to facilitate the sale of products dedicated to the northern European paper market; while in 2010 Cromatos acquired the company “Henkem Products”, based in Prato, specialized in the field of chemical auxiliaries.
In 2012 Cromatos celebrated it’s 20th anniversary, and in 2014 turnover of €27 million was reached, with more than 50 employees. On achieving this milestone Cromatos decided to begin a new challenge, starting the design of a new, bigger production site, which is scheduled for completion in Summer 2016.
