Grey Mountain Vice President Jason Urband called Dimex “a leader in several end markets,” in a news release.

Dimex runs a 220,000-square-foot plant in Marietta that extrudes and finishes profiles from polyethylene, and rigid and flexible PVC It also processes EPDM rubber and does calendering and custom compounding. It prefers to use recycled materials.

Typical products include edging for landscaping, boat dock edging, and products that control wall joint movement during temperature changes in masonry walls. The firm was established in 1991.
