Company Profile

DVM is based in Chorley, Lancashire, UK, and was founded in 1993 by David Maltman, a proven executive with many years of technical and sales experience in pigments and polymer industries.

DVM continues to strive toward the company’s main goals of supplying quality products to the surface coatings industry. Building on our success, DVM has now branched out and found many other application areas for its key coloured dispersion products.

In 2018, DVM was acquired by CHAT Investments LTD, a joint investment arm of Textile Rubber & Chemical Co., Inc. (TRCC) and Excelkos Group of Companies Malaysia, bringing more than 100+ years of combined latex, dispersion and emulsion experience.
