Protech Acquisition of Thermoclad

PRESS RELEASE November 29, 2012 The Protech/Oxyplast Group of Montreal, Canada is pleased to announce that they have reached an agreement to purchase the thermoplastic powder and liquid coatings businesses of the Thermoclad Company of Erie, Pennsylvania. Thermoclad is a global leader in the production and marketing of PVC powder coatings for fabricated metals such as fencing and dishwasher racks. The company also develops environmentally safe paints as well as other thermoplastics such as nylon and co-polyesters. David Ades, Managing Director of Protech said: “Thermoclad’s leading position in thermoplastics and especially PVC powder coatings will add a new dimension to our growing powder business. We are excited about the opportunities and synergies which will be generated.” Martin Renkis, chairman of the Thermoclad Company and son of founder Alan Renkis said “Thermoclad has a 50 year history in protective coatings as well as valuable relationships we expect Protech will benefit from. My father immigrated from Latvia after World War II and came to Erie as a young man. From his start as a local paperboy to becoming a leader in the Erie business community, Dad always had a strong sense of pride in his work, especially in the ground-breaking technologies Thermoclad developed. Our family is pleased to see another successful family-run company like Protech continue Thermoclad’s tradition of innovation and keep our dedicated employees here in Erie.” Protech will maintain Thermoclad’s liquid and powder manufacturing operations in Erie, PA. The transaction is expected to close in mid-December 2012.

New Website design

There have been changes made to the website. Please check it out. 

Welcome!

Welcome to all new and old users! 

We have decided to revive the Protech-Oxyplast Forum! This forum was designed to facilitate the sharing of news, information and for the entire network to communicate together! Constant global communication is crucial in the growth of our company. We encourage every user to log on EVERY day and use this as a tool that will benefit us all. 

Last week from October 3rd-7th, the sales team directors of the Protech-Oxyplast Network from across the world came together in Ghent, Belgium. The goal of this meeting was for everyone to discuss their intentions and actions over the next few years. We learnt about the many product lines, new sales approaches and how to become more unified with product codes. 

We have already received great feedback from this meeting and we believe that it was a great success!

Welcome to the Protech-Oxyplast online forum

PROTECH is pleased to announce the launch of the PROTECH-OXYPLAST LICENSEE FORUM.

This new internet communication tool will allow us to expand the dialogue throughout the PROTECH-OXYPLAST network. The conversations will be held on a multi-lateral platform rather than on a one-on-one basis. This will provide a free flow of information and experience throughout the group. An unlimited number of participants can share information, initiate collaborative development projects or ask questions in an open dialogue. Solutions may come from any of the members. Your participation is absolutely essential to make this tool worthwhile.

The FORUM will be structured on 5 areas of interest (pages):   

  1. Powder Coating General Information
  2. Formulation and Technology
  3. Costs and Purchasing
  4. Manufacturing and Quality
  5. Sales and Marketing

New updates will appear regularly on each page. Register now by clicking HERE. We are really excited about this new initiative. The PROTECH-OXYPLAST brand will be stronger than ever.

 

Thank you
