3A Composites’ parent company acquires Athlone Extrusions
3A Composites has announced the successful acquisition of Athlone Extrusions by its parent company, Schweiter Technologies.
Athlone Extrusions is based in Athlone, Ireland and is one of the leading manufacturers of coloured opaque multilayer plastic sheeting in Europe. The plastic sheets are primarily used by thermoformers who manufacture parts for the automotive industry, the sanitary ware industry, plus the office equipment, point of sale and furniture sectors.
Athlone has highly developed expertise in the manufacture of complex multilayer sheets in customer specific colours, which combine the advantages of consistent embedded colour, surface finish, ease of thermoforming, light weight and recyclability.
Following the successful acquisition and integration of Foamalite in 2012 and Polycasa in 2015, the acquisition of Athlone marks in another major step in 3A Composites’ plan to further extend the range of products that it offers.
The coloured opaque multilayer materials produced by Athlone will ideally complement the existing product range of 3A Composites’ Transport & Industry division and will further strengthen the company’s position as a diverse and leading manufacturer of materials for display, building and industrial applications.
