Montreal-based manufacturer Arborite announced an agreement to acquire Lamin-Art, Inc. The Schaumburg, Illinois-based Lamin-Art was a privately-held business and will now operate as part of the Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces organization. The transaction was expected to close in May.
“The Lamin-Art business model nests beautifully into our brand strategy,” says Salvatore Rivera, president of Arborite. “Lamin-Art has earned a distinctive brand cachet in the commercial interior design markets. Their unique offering allows us to provide even more design and product choice to customers.”
Adds Donald Krog, former owner and president of Lamin-Art: “Lamin-Art is proud of our exceptional employees and loyal customers we’ve earned over more than 50 years. Together with Arborite’s resources and expertise, the business will continue to evolve and grow.”
Kevin Geijer, a 16-year Wilsonart veteran, has been appointed general manager of Lamin-Art. “I am excited about the opportunity to grow and build this terrific business,” Geijer says.
