Nubiola Celebrates 100th Birthday

In 2014 Nubiola Group, Barcelona, Spain, is celebrating 100 years in providing innovative color solutions to the plastics, coatings, construction and cosmetics markets as well as to a wide range of other global industries.

In 1914, Nubiola built a small factory in Barcelona to produce laundry grade Ultramarine Blues to make white cotton clothes look whiter. 100 years later, the company has become the world’s largest Ultramarine producer with 4 plants dedicated to the production of this pigment. Moreover, Nubiola is a global leading manufacturer of other specialty inorganic pigments with particular focus on the high end grades of each range: Iron Oxides, Zinc Ferrites, Chrome Oxide Greens, Chrome Yellows and Molybdate Oranges, Corrosion Inhibitors and Bismuth Vanadates.

In 1944 Nubiola opened a factory in Llodio (Spain) which is nowadays dedicated to the production of high added-value Ultramarine Blue, Violet and Pink pigments. In 1969 the company set up a production plant in Colombia, a plant for specialty Iron Oxides and Zinc Ferrites, also producing Ultramarine Blues, Chrome Oxide Greens, Chrome Yellows and Molybdate Oranges and Corrosion Inhibitors. In 1992 a plant in Romania, was acquired where they manufacture tje Label-Free Corrosion Inhibitors and a wide variety of Ultramarine Blues. Two years later, Nubiola acquired a plant in India for the production of Ultramarine Blues for the Asian market. The company broke into the USA in 1999, but it was in 2003 when they invested in their current North America headquarters in Norcross, Georgia, where they have offices, technical center, warehouse and specific manufacturing facilities to make pigment preparations. Since the early 2000s Nubiola has also been expanding their sales office network into Japan, China, the UK, and Germany.

In total, Nubiola Group has 5 production plants and 9 commercial sites in key strategic markets, which allow them to have a strong global presence while maintaining regional warehousing and customer service to over 85 countries.
