Pregis has acquired So.Pr.Ad. SRL (Soprad), Milan, Italy, a global provider of temporary protective films.
Going forward, Soprad’s products will be marketed under the Pregis’ PolyMask brand and will further reinforce its offerings to a growing global market. (PolyMask products include temporary surface protection films and specialty films)
“Soprad has a 40-year track record of supplying performance-oriented adhesive protective films for a variety of surfaces including metal, plastic, glass and carpet. Its robust European customer base provides an ideal foundation from which to expand the availability of our existing temporary adhesive film products,” said Kevin Baudhuin, president and chief executive officer. “The acquisition strengthens Pregis’ position as a leading global producer of surface protection films.”
Additionally, the integration of Soprad products means that Pregis PolyMask will now be able to expand its product range to include solvent-rubber and solvent-acrylic based product solutions to the global marketplace. These solutions provide immediate market opportunities, particularly for the metals and automotive market segments.
