Ascend Performance Materials, Houston TX/USA, reportedly the largest fully integrated producer of polyamide 66 resin, signed an agreement to purchase Poliblend and Esseti Plast GD from D’Ottavio Group.

The acquisition includes a manufacturing facility in Mozzate, Italy, the masterbatch portfolio of Esseti Plast GD and the engineering plastics portfolio of Poliblend, which consists of virgin and recycled grades of PA66, PA6, PBT and POM.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The acquisition is expected to close in the second quarter.
