TORONTO—Royal Group Technologies Ltd. has completed the acquisition of a PVC resin production plant in Sarnia, Ontario, from Imperial Oil Ltd.
Royal of Toronto will use all the plant's output to supply most of its PVC needs in extruding building products. The facility has capacity of 400 million pounds per year. Vic De Zen, Royal chairman, president and chief executive officer, said the deal ``is particularly timely given the ongoing PVC resin manufacturing industry consolidation.''
Royal paid C$67.6 million (US$43.9 million) before working capital adjustments. Imperial, majority owned by Exxon Corp., was the only PVC producer among Exxon companies.
