Langley, British Columbia-Epic Polymer Systems Corp. has acquired BC Rubber Supply Ltd, a move expected to double Epic's sales within 18 months.
The 2 Jan deal combines companies that manufacture engineered elastomers, rubber and cast polyurethane products for clients throughout North America, especially Western Canada and the Pacific coast of the US, according to Greg Fraser, Epic Polymer president and general manager.
Epic has operations in Woodland, Washington and Langley, while BC Supply has a 15 000-sq.ft (1400-sq.m) factory six blocks away from Epic in Langley.
Fraser said there will be no change in the manufacturing facilities, and the company will continue to operate BC Rubber's Langley site.
All product lines and markets from BC Rubber will be served under the Epic Polymer brand.
