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.
