Adding color to the world since 1979
More than 40 years ago, a group of enthusiastic plastics innovators founded Holland Colours in an old paper factory in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.
Their big idea? To make low- and no-dust colorants for plastic products by encapsulating pigments in a bio-based carrier. The result was Holcobatch, a bio-based masterbatch that remains unique in the industry.
