Chesterton acquires Ceramic Polymer

A.W. Chesterton Company, the manufacturer of ARC Efficiency & Protective Coatings, has recently acquired Ceramic Polymer GmbH, which is the manufacturer of industrial coatings that protect the metal and concrete of large industrial structures such as storage tanks, pipelines and bio gas facilities.
The purchase of German-based Ceramic Polymer GmbH further increases Chesterton’s global production ability for their protective coatings line marketed under the brand of ARC as well as their line of specialty lubricants and MRO maintenance products. “The combination of Ceramic Polymer with our ARC Coatings will provide our clients regionally produced and inventoried products with shorter lead times for the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and an expanded product offering for North and South America,” said Brian O’Donnell, CEO of A. W. Chesterton.
The company will use Ceramic Polymer’s existing manufacturing capability to expand the offering of REACh Compliant ARC Coatings in the EU market. Additionally, they will eventually leverage Ceramic Polymer’s warehouse facilities to serve to its EU customers with both ARC and IL MRO (industrial lubricant and maintenance) products.
