Impreglon buys US-plant from Sulzer AG


Effective September 1, 2009 a second Impreglon production facility will offer its coating services in the USA. The new plant is located in the Northeast of the United States near Boston, a distant 1,000 miles from the existing 15 year old Impreglon plant in Atlanta, Georgia.

The acquisition of the new operation in Woonsocket, Rhode Island will allow Impreglon to increase its customer base in that region. More important though is the addition of the “PVD Thin Film Technology” practiced in Woonsocket which brings Impreglon closer to its strategic “One Stop Shop” goal for surface technology. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

Impreglon AG, Lüneburg, is a surface technology company listed on the “Entry standard” of the Frankfurter Börse. It has 15 coating plants worldwide with 450 employees. Sales in 2008 were 47 million Euros.
