Teknor Apex: Takeover of the TPV Business
Teknor Apex Company, Pawtucket, USA, has purchased Sarlink, the thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) business division from Royal DSM N.V., Heerlen, Netherlands. The takeover includes the production sites in Leominster, USA, and Genk, Belgium, and the technical and lab resources for applications development. The roughly 90 employees, including those from other divisions, will also be transferred.
Teknor will continue to market thermoplastic vulcanizates under the trade name Sarlink. The company says it intends to use the expansion to strengthen its market position as the world’s most highly diversified independent TPE compounder, and to extend its product range at the high-performance end, particularly for automotive applications.
