'“we export to over 50 countries”

TTC is the leading UK manufacturer of colour, based beside the River Lagan in Belfast, Northern Ireland. We started life in 1949 when the Tennants Group started the company. Since then we have been producing a wide range of dispersions tailored to optimise their suitability to a range of applications. In 2016 TTC acquired Northwest Dispersions Ltd and also incorporated the business of Tennants Inks and Coatings Ltd, thus adding solvent, plasticiser and varnish products to our portfolio.

Today we export to over 50 countries and deliver excellence in colour for a range of markets (Textile, Paper, Paints & Coatings, Ink, Agriculture & Plastic).

We pride ourselves on our ability and willingness to work with companies to supply high quality products tailored to their needs and also developing lasting relationships with our customers.

Our technical team has a wealth of experience in colour science and formulation expertise; this coupled with our capacity to manufacture product batches from 30kg to 25 tonnes allows us to provide an unparalleled service. We can advise on the optimum colorant to use and create a customised product for you.

Legislation and environmental issues are central to all chemical activities and we make our responsibilities in this area core to all the products we offer. Regulatory compliance is critical to our product offering. We keep up to date with the issues affecting our manufacturing operations but also those that impact our customers. TTC is fully certified for ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001.
