The Beginnings

J.M. Huber Corporation started with Joseph Maria Huber's trip to New York City to develop new markets for his family's dry color business.

Dry colors are pigments used to produce inks. Five years later, J.M. Huber's customer base was centered on the import and distribution of the family's dry colors. Today, as one of the largest family-owned companies in the United States, the multinational company has grown to encompass the manufacture and supply of engineered materials, natural resources and technology-based services and serves a wide range of industries.

This fifth-generation family company has always provided solutions that its customers can trust. J.M. Huber's close relationship and readiness to help customers was a common practice and one that has been passed down as a guiding principle of the company for over a century. Mr. Huber always found a solution, even when a fire burned his Brooklyn plant to the ground in 1913. Within 48 hours, he had production up and running again in a rented space. This solution-driven business practice became the foundation upon which the company grew.

J.M. Huber Corporation now works with a broad range of industries to provide both products and services. Its businesses include three sectors: Engineered Materials, Natural Resources and Technology-Based Service. For more information on J.M. Huber Corporation, please visit www.huber.com
