Marieville, Que.-based PVC compounder Reinier Plastics Inc. has been acquired by Aurora Plastics LLC, a supplier of PVC compounds headquartered in Streetsboro, Ohio.

The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

“Aurora is focused on enabling our customers’ success by providing outstanding compounds, service and solutions,” said Darrell Hughes, CEO of Aurora Plastics. “The acquisition of Reinier allows us to build on both companies’ commitment to customers while expanding our product offering and footprint. Aurora has established strong business relationships with its customers, and for 25 years Reinier has had the same focus.”

The acquisition also expands the combined company’s supply chain and manufacturing footprint, Hughes said, adding to its ability to quickly and efficiently supply customers with the products they need. “The combined company operates three PVC compound production facilities across the U.S., and Canada: in Marieville, Que., Welcome, N.C., and Streetsboro, Ohio,” he said.

The combined company will also offer a wider range of custom PVC compounding capabilities, including rigid PVC powders; rigid PVC pellets (cubes and hexcut); clear, opaque, and coloured flexible PVC; rigid cellular PVC; clear rigid PVC; PVC/acrylic pellets; and purge compounds.

“We viewed Aurora as the best partner to enable Reinier’s next phase of growth and we’re very excited to continue this journey with our customers and employees,” said Renier president Luc Tremblay. “Aurora’s commitment to growth, including planned investments in our Quebec facility, is a big positive for our customers, employees and supplier partners.”

Founded in 1992, Reinier manufactures PVC compounds and alloys and also offers advanced blending and pelletizing lines. The company has been ISO 9001 accredited since 2000.
