HORN, one of North America’s premier specialty distributors of raw chemical materials, announced a new partnership with Engineered Polymer Solutions (EPS) and Color Corporation of America (CCA). Effective Dec. 1, HORN will be representing EPS and CCA as their exclusive sales distributor throughout the West Coast and Southwest territories, offering a full line of high performance acrylic, styrene-acrylic and alkyd resins; as well as pigment dispersion and colorants for the architectural and industrial coatings and related industries.

“HORN seeks to engage with best-in-class suppliers to benefit our partners and customers across the diverse industries we serve,” said Bob Ahn, president, HORN Industrial Division. “When we sought to further expand our product line, we were keen on partnering with an industry leader that shared our values in customer service, innovation and technical expertise. EPS is an industry leader in its space and our new partnership gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers through the distribution of broad application, performance-based technologies. We’ve earned the trust of EPS and CCA and we are confident this partnership will flourish with the dedicated service of our professional and technically trained sales force.”

The advanced technology of EPS’ waterborne resins and CCA’s pigment dispersions helps to complete HORN’s award-winning product lines for key industry segments including architectural and industrial coatings, inks, adhesives and construction.

“A long-standing reputation of excellence in specialty distribution was the key to our decision in choosing HORN to represent us and distribute our innovations in the West and Southwest,” said Henry Bunch, division vice president, EPS-Materials. “We are looking forward to the new opportunities that open as a result of our new partnership with HORN.”
