Ahmedabad-based Kiri Dyes and Chemicals Limited – through its SPV, Kiri Holding Singapore Private Limited – has acquired the German DyStar Group (DyStar) from the insolvency administrators of DyStar’s estate via an asset purchase agreement. Financial details have not been disclosed.
Kiri Dyes and Chemicals Limited is a listed Indian company engaged mainly in the manufacture of reactive dyes, which are used primarily in cotton fabrics. The company also manufactures and markets dye intermediates and basic chemicals for the dyestuff industry.

In September 2009, DyStar filed for insolvency with the Frankfurt courts, and insolvency administrators were appointed.
