CAME TO BE
Although formally established in 1998, ChromaScape has a rich history of manufacturing colorants and additives for many different markets and applications. In 1968, Cleveland native George Chase and his wife Carol Ann founded Allied Color Industries, Inc. as a colorant formulator, manufacturer and supplier to the plastics industry. The company prospered and, in 1987, was acquired by M.A. Hanna Company – a Fortune 300 company with plans to become a major provider of plastic resins, colorants and rubber compounds.
Chase left M.A. Hanna Company in 1995 and founded ChromaScape three years later after purchasing controlling interest in Amerimulch. ChromaScape moved its headquarters to Independence, OH in 2021 and its Ohio production facility to Stow in 2022. Today, ChromaScape has over 100 years of combined colorant industry experience which includes executive, strategic and operational management experience from entrepreneurial startups to Fortune 300 companies. It operates six manufacturing and distribution facilities throughout the United States.
