Trelleborg Sealing Solutions plans to acquire Specialty Silicone Fabricators Inc. to expand its operation in the U.S.
One of five large business segments within Stockholm-based Trelleborg A.B., Trelleborg Sealing Solutions bought SSF because it is a leading player in the high growth U.S. life sciences market “with a strong reputation, track record and an attractive base of OEM customers,” according to Claus Barsoe, president of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions.
The acquisition will provide Trelleborg with a strong platform for future development, the company said.
Headquartered in Tustin, Calif., SSF is a privately owned manufacturer of high precision silicone components used by medical technology original equipment manufacturers.
SSF also has operations in Paso Robles, Calif., and Elk Rapids, Mich. It posted 2015 sales of about $39.1 million, according to Trelleborg's statement.
