History
The company was established in 2003 by three directors – Paul Davies, David Williams and Claire Mirfin. All three had previously worked together at Yorkshire Chemicals, while Paul and David also had long careers with ICI/Zeneca in various international management roles.

In 2012, we re-located to a new site, increasing our production capacity and capability. Well-equipped laboratories were installed and EFI Rialco now has over 28,000 square feet of warehousing for the storage of chemicals.

Research and development
With a customer focus on product development, we work closely and confidentially with a number of international companies to develop tailor made products. Extensive expertise in colors allows us to develop products that enhance our customer’s marketing offers, providing them with unique products.
