Langley, British Columbia - Canadian polyurethane moulder RP Manufacturing Ltd will acquire Teflon specialist Protef Polymers Inc. and combine the operations at RP's facility in Langley.
Terms were not disclosed.
Protef has closed its Surrey, British Columbia, plant. Protef owner Mark Adams will move to RP as a production supervisor.
Protef moulds and custom machines rods and tubes using DuPont Co.'s Teflon and other materials.
RP custom moulds urethane for functional parts in a variety of industries, at two plants, the site in Langley, Canada, and one at Woodland, Washington, in the US.
The company was set up in 1972 with a focus on supplying wear-resistant parts in its highly durable 'Superkast' brand urethane, available, according to the company's website, in "a broad hardness range, from eraser-soft to bowling-ball hard." This allows the company to customise the PU elastomer to specific applications and solve problems related to wear, noise, impact, shock and more, RP says.
