History of Organic Dyes and Pigments Corporation

Our company was started in 1949 when three men, Samuel Stott, John Sandilands, and John Gormley, formed what was then called Organic Chemical Corporation in a small building on a side street in Providence, Rhode Island. They made a promise that they would focus primarily on understanding the concerns and needs of their customer, the textile dyer. With nearly 100 operating textile mills in Rhode Island alone at the time, business was exceptional.

Over the years, new facilities were built in North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia to provide fast and dependable service to an increasing base of textile customers in the southern United States, eventually consolidating these operations into its current Concord, North Carolina facility. Early on, ORCO changed its name to Organic Dyestuffs Corporation and, in 2014, further changed the name to Organic Dyes and Pigments LLC, reflecting its well established heritage in both pigments and dyes.
