TekTube USA LLC, a flexible plastic hose and tubing producer based in Denton, Texas, has acquired two product lines from TekTube Group.
TekTube USA obtained the equipment, formulas and naming rights for NeuGen and UltraFlex hoses, which are used in the spa, pool, and irrigation industries.
Production is scheduled to start in June followed by shipping in the third quarter from distribution facilities in Texas and Pennsylvania.
“With over 30 years combined experience in the flexible hosing and tubing business, TekTube USA will produce on the same equipment, using the same raw materials and formulations to provide the same NSF [National Sanitation Foundation] approved quality hoses,” a two-paragraph news release says.
Roscom Inc., a PVC compounder based in Croydon, Pa., announced last year it was selling off its sister company, TekTube Group LLC, in whole or piecemeal to free up space to increase production of compounds using non-phthalate plasticizers. TekTube Group ceased operations in September and a dozen of the employees transferred to Roscom.
