ATLANTA—Bonding and surfacing solutions firm Arclin has acquired the North American operations of Coveright Surfaces, including manufacturing facilities in Cobourg, Ont. and Blythewood, S.C.
This acquisition gives Arclin capacity to supply decorative melamine, laminate flooring films and phenolic films used largely in the manufacture of furniture, cabinetry, fixtures and flooring.
The combined company will offer an extensive portfolio of overlay products manufactured at one Canadian facility and four in the U.S.
“Downstream markets are increasingly looking for high performing, cost effective surfacing solutions,” said Arclin president and CEO Russ Taylor, adding that the acquisition was driven by Arclin and Coveright’s mutual desire to meet further projected increases in demand for these products as the economy gradually improves.
Coveright operations in South America are not affected by this transaction. Terms of the transaction were not released.
Arclin makes bonding and surfacing solutions for building and construction, engineered materials, agricultural and natural resource markets.
Coveright produces surface materials for furniture, flooring and building industries.
