26-06-2008: Hercules Incorporated announced it has acquired Logos Química Ltda., a Brazilian based specialty chemicals company with 100 employees and 2007 annual sales of approximately $17 million.
Headquartered in São Paulo, Brazil, Logos Química specializes in the supply of specialty chemicals, technology and services to the pulp, paper, and coatings industries.
