OM Group, Inc. (OMG) said recently that its previously announced acquisition of dmc2, a subsidiary of Degussa AG, has been completed. OMG is now a leading worldwide provider of precious metal-based functional materials for a wide variety of high-growth end markets. The businesses that OMG will retain include metals management, automotive catalysts, fuel cells, precious metals chemistry, technical materials, and jewelry and electroplating. Also as previously announced, OMG will divest the electronics materials, performance pigments and colors, glass systems and Cerdec ceramics divisions to Ferro Corp. in the near future.
