Plaskolite Acquires Lucite Division
Plaskolite announced that it has finalized the acquisition
of the continuously processed acrylic sheet division of
Lucite International. Plaskolite will purchase the manufacturing
plants located in Olive Branch, Mississippi and
Monterrey, Mexico. The acquisition is anticipated to be
complete in the early part of the third quarter.
“This acquisition enhances our ability to provide better
service for our customers,” said James R. Dunn, President
of Plaskolite. “Our customers’ best interests are at the
forefront of every decision we make and this acquisition
will give Plaskolite more manufacturing capacity and
opportunities to better serve our customers logistically.”
The acquisition is a landmark event for the acrylic industry.
Plaskolite was one of the original domestic companies
to help build the foundation of the extruded acrylic sheet
industry in the United States nearly 60 years ago. Today,
Plaskolite remains the only privately-held, family-owned
business in the industry.
“Our dedicated leadership team will continue to seek
opportunities that advance our position as an industry
leader and innovator,” said Dunn.
