The agreement formalises the partnership between the two companies and will allow both companies’ customers to benefit from the combined services.

Gustavo Defeo, CEO of Ars Tinctoria, said: “We shall benefit from each other’s expertise and from some resource mutualisation for programs like ZDHC or our new biobased materials protocols. This partnership with CTC will provide a more complete and qualified offer both at an Italian and international level.”
