Published on 2014-02-21. Author : SpecialChem

Impreglon has further reinforced its worldwide coating network by acquiring Optical Coating Technologies of Tamworth/UK, effective January 1, 2014. After the acquisition of TOP Oberflächen of Würzburg last year, which not only coats plastic components under clean room conditions but also has developed its own line of high performance top coats Impreglon was looking to expand these coating opportunities within the group.

OTC pens up two new fields: new applications on glasses, lenses, visors etc. with protective coatings for the Würzburg plant as well as the use of Impreglon's own scratchproof coatings in the new plant in Tamworth. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchasing price.

With 33 plants in 14 countries on 4 continents Impreglon is one of the global leaders in surface technology.
