Maroon Group - Specialty Intermediates History
The foundation for Amsyn began with the establishment of Amber Synthetics Incorporated in 1989. Amber Synthetics was initially created to provide custom manufacturing and sourcing services to the pharmaceutical industry.
In 1992, Amber Synthetics was merged together with newly acquired activities in chemical distribution (Alemark Chemical) and R&D Consulting (Custom Synthesis & Development). The operations of Amber Synthetics, Alemark Chemicals and CS&D together became Amsyn Incorporated, a uniquely integrated organization perfectly adapted to meet the full range of development, commercialization and distribution needs of the chemical industry. Amsyn became part of Maroon Group Specialty Intermediates in 2019.

Cadence has a fantastic record of strong supplier and customer relationships executed by a dedicated team. Cadence Chemical became part Maroon Group’s Specialty Intermediates business in 2016.
