Penn Color

In May 1964 Edgar Putman founded PFD Plastics in Flemington, NJ because he saw great opportunity in the plastics industry. PFD Plastics became a leading supplier of pigment dispersions for plastics, in particular for the flexible PVC film and compound industries.

Edgar approached Sun Chemical Corporation in 1971 about a company they operated called Pennsylvania Chemical Color (Penn Color), located in Doylestown, PA. Penn Color was a manufacturer of pigment dispersions for printing inks and industrial coatings, and became Mr. Putman’s very first acquisition. Jointly, the two companies were able to disperse almost any pigment in any resin, creating what has become the most diversified color concentrate and pigment dispersion company in North America.
