About Us

History

The SWISSCOLOR, s.r.o. with domicile in Trenčín was founded in the year 1993 as an agency of CIBA Speciality Chemicals Switzerland with its activity in Slovakia. Its goal was to provide, for the above mentioned company, sales-technical support in dye and chemicals sales for customers from the textile industry. CIBA had at that time more than 40 years of history with producers of textile materials in the former Czechoslovakia.

 

After a few years of cooperation between the two partners, the company SWISSCOLOR gradually transformed from an agency to an exclusive distributor of products of the CIBA company and later the HUNTSMAN (USA) company which bought CIBA back in 2006.

 

Based on good results of the business cooperation, after a mutual agreement of both parties, the company expanded its scope, in 2005, from Slovakia to Czech Republic and later also to other countries of former Jugoslavia. More precisely Serbia, Slovenia, Bosna and Herzegovina and Montenegro. SWISSCOLOR became one of the foremost supplier of textile chemistry not only within the scope of Czechoslovakia but also in Central and Eastern Europe, here as well as in the beforementioned territories the company keeps its leading status not only in sales but primarily in providing of technics service.

 

For HUNTSMAN, we are looking for expansion outside of traditional textiles, for which are examples of new application in other industrial fields, such as technical textiles, non-woven textiles, glassfibre materials, coatings and more.

Since 2014, SWISSCOLOR acts as a representative in the states of Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia and Hungary, of the Canadian-american company DCL, which are the foremost world’s producers of colour pigments and pigment dispersions.

 

Thanks to this cooperation, SWISSCOLOR’s field of competence expanded from purely textile industry to other industrial fields. Primary pigment buyers are producers of paints and varnishes as well as producers of coloured concentrates (Masterbatches) for plastics.

 

Additionaly, SWISSCOLOR is actively involved in development of new special chemistry to increase safety in coal mines. The PROMINER brand products are an innovative solution of prevention and suppression of endoganic fires and explosions.

 

Since 2020, Swisscolor has gained exclusive representation in the Danish company CleanShield Group for antibacterial and antiviral protection.

 

In 2021, Swisscolor signed a contract with ACME Dyeing Machinery in Taiwan. It is a cooperation in the field of sales of machines intended for dyeing textile materials with a revolutionary patented technology, which allows to significantly reduce energy requirements and water consumption and thus contributes to greening in the textile processing process.

 

SWISSCOLOR focuses primarily on their customer’s satisfaction, which is why along its logistic services offers, via their sales-technical representatives, a highly specialized technical support.

SWISSCOLOR was in 2016 granted, thanks to their accomplishments, the ISO 9001 certificate.
