Plaskolite to Acquire Covestro PC Sheet Manufacturing Business
Plaskolite, LLC, North America’s largest manufacturer of
acrylic sheet products, announced that it is acquiring the
North American polycarbonate sheet manufacturing business
of Covestro, a global leader in high-tech polymer
materials. The acquisition transforms the North American
sheet industry by combining the leader in acrylic manufacturing
and the leader in polycarbonate manufacturing.
As a part of the transaction, Plaskolite is acquiring sheet
headquarters, production sites and warehouse facilities in
Sheffield, Massachusetts and will maintain the existing
third-party distribution warehouse facility in Hebron, Ohio.
With this acquisition, Plaskolite will employ 950 people.
Founded in 1950 in Columbus, Ohio, by Donald G.
Dunn and family, Plaskolite, LLC is the largest North
American manufacturer of see-through thermoplastic
sheet products. Plaskolite’s customized products are used
in a wide variety of applications, including windows, doors,
lighting, signs, point-of-purchase displays and bath products.
Plaskolite serves a diverse customer base, including
distributors, OEMs and retailers.
Plaskolite will be the only manufacturer ever to offer a
complete clear sheet product portfolio, including acrylic,
polycarbonate, PETG and ABS.
This will be the second business that Plaskolite has
acquired from Covestro. In 2012, Plaskolite purchased its
North American Vivak® line of PETG sheet. Covestro corporate
headquarters are in Leverkusen, Germany.
