Delphos, US – The parent company of Accella Polyurethane Systems, based in Delphos in the US state of Ohio, has sent a Warn Act notice to its employees, and the state government, notifying them of potential redundancies. The notice, dated 13 January, 2023, states that Carlisle Weatherproofing Technologies, a division of Carlisle Companies, is contemplating the sale of Accella’s business operations and facilities in Delphos.
Arizona-based Carlisle Companies purchased Accella – a manufacturer of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) and liquid applied roofing (LAR) products – in 2017, from Arsenal Capital Partners, in a $670m cash deal. In 2019, the Accella Polyurethane Systems SPF unit was rebranded as Carlisle Spray Foam Insulation.
The Delphos site, which was purchased by Accella from RTH Processing and RDT Manufacturing in 2014, produces coloured EPDM granules for playground surfacing, and rolled rubber products.
A total of 71 employees at the Delphos site have been notified that their employment will be terminated if a sale of the business is not concluded by 31 March, 2023. The Warn (Worker Adjustment Retraining Notification) Act is a federal US law, which requires companies to give its employees 60 calendar days’ notice of a potential mass redundancy.
