In British Columbia, ownership a manufacturing firm for molded tubes and rods has just changed hands.

Custom plastic component supplier RP Manufacturing, headquartered in Langley, has acquired Protef Polymers Inc., located in Surrey.

Founded in 1999, Protef manufacturers molded rods and tubes from DuPont’s Teflon polymer.

As of March 15, Protef will close its facility in Surrey, and all manufacturing equipment will move to RP Manufacturing’s plant in Langley.

Mark Adams, owner and founder of Protef, will also move to RP Manufacturing as a production supervisor.

“The new equipment will increase RP Manufacturing’s machining, fabrication and molding production capabilities of both Teflon products and our current line of polyurethane products,” RP Manufacturing said.

RP Manufacturing molds, machines and fabricates a wide range of custom plastic components for a variety of industries. In additon to its site in Langley, the company runs a U.S. production facility in Woodland, Wash.
