Troy is a global leader in the field of industrial preservation with broad expertise in paints and coatings, wood protection and preservation, home and personal care, plastics and textiles, energy and metal working fluids.

Arxada will benefit from Troy’s technical expertise, trusted customer relationships and broad portfolio of performance products as well as its long history of innovation, including the invention of 3-iodo propynyl butyl carbamate (IPBC). Troy brings five new production sites across the world, four research and development centres and approximately 650 employees, enhancing Arxada’s commercial presence across the globe to further accelerate the company’s innovation capabilities and better serve customer needs.

The completion of the merger with Troy follows the acquisition of Enviro Tech Chemical Services, a category-leading manufacturer of proprietary and high-efficacy antimicrobial and biocidal products, announced on December 23, 2021.

“The completion of two strategic deals in our first six months as an independent company shows our commitment to strengthening our position as a partner of choice in microbial control through the addition of new applications and active ingredients to our portfolio,” said Marc Doyle, Arxada chief executive officer.

“We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues and look forward to building on our combined expertise to deliver new solutions and services to our customers.”
