We are pleased to announce the ICM Silicones Group of companies will be acquired by the German Chemical Group CHT (RB Beitlich GmbH of Tübingen, Germany). CHT manufactures an extensive line of chemicals, including many silicone based materials, for the textile, mold making, paints & coatings and consumer care markets.

ICM’s ability to service our customers with a broader range of products will be greatly enhanced by our partnership with CHT. We are excited about the added resources and capabilities this new relationship will provide.

We firmly believe the value in our business is created through the continuous support of our customers and CHT appreciates the importance of maintaining and cultivating these relationships.

We are looking forward to becoming part of the CHT team and providing an expanded line of products and services. Should you have any questions regarding this transaction, don’t hesitate to contact your sales representative, any member of our management team or myself.

We greatly appreciate your business and look forward to continuing to provide you with the highest quality silicone products on the market.
