“Moving forward, Accella intends to focus on investing in and growing our spray foam business to meet the needs of our valued customers,” he added.
Chris Brink, Accella PU systems vice president, added that the firm “will continue to raise the position of [spray polyurethane foam] as the preferred insulation choice in modern residential and commercial construction.” The combination “further strengthens Accella’s position as the leading independent polyurethane systems house in North America,” according to Arsenal partner John Televantos.
