Greenfield, Massachusetts - Argotec Inc. said 23 July that it has regrouped its thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU/PU) business to focus on matching products to specific customer groups and their needs. As president and chief executive officer Bruce Wilby explained, "Rather than focusing just on products we can make and market, we are concentrating on better matching our film extrusion capabilities, technical expertise and resources with the applications of our customers - strength to strength."
Steve Wolkenbreit, co-founder and co-chairman of the TPU film specialist, commented that the group's philosophy remains the same: to listen to customers, focus on problem solving, and have technical service as its main priority.
"What has changed is the way we integrate groups of like products and resources," so that Argotec can meet customer challenges using an application-oriented apporach, structured around our six primary markets," Wolkenbreit continued.
Each market has its own brand, literature and self-contained sections on the company's web site, www.argotec.com, as follows:
ArgoBond optical interlayer films and edge seal tapes for laminated-glass uses
ArgoGuard tough, weatherable, high-gloss aliphatic films for paint and metal protection
ArgoMed barrier films with antimicrobial infection control for medical devices and wound-dressings
ArgoGraph printable, conformable, high-gloss over-laminate films for graphics uses
ArgoFlex textile laminating films for bonding fabric layers together, air and water containment, and waterproofing
