HAMMONTON, N.J. (Sept. 26, 11:55 a.m. ET) — Compounders and concentrate makers Polyvel Inc. and Rowa Inc. have combined their operations into the Polyvel site in Hammonton.
Rowa had operated its own production site in nearby Delran, N.J. The combined site will operate 10 twin-screw extrusion lines, officials said in a Sept. 26 news release.
Both firms make a range of additive masterbatches and custom compounds based on several commodity and engineering resins. Rowa is a unit of Rowa Group of Hamburg, Germany.
Combining the two firms “makes great sense for both companies,” Polyvel President Brian Tidwell said in the release. “We're excited about what it means for us going forward.”
Rowa President David Baglia added that having the two firms' sales and technical teams work together “will provide more resources to develop products.”
