SUZHOU, China — June 5, 2014 — Americhem Inc., a global provider of custom color and additive solutions for synthetic fibers, will lead a technical seminar on color and performance additives for specialty fibers during the ITMA Asia + CITME exhibition at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China.
