ROGERS, Conn. (Jan. 9)—Rogers Corp. has bought the elastomeric foam sheet activities of Cellect L.L.C., a $14 million-a-year business that Rogers will integrate into its Bisco silicone foams unit. Rogers paid $10 million for Cellect, which Walter E. Boomer, president and CEO, called a "perfect fit to the company's overall specialty materials portfolio" and "strong complements Rogers' existing high-performance urethane and silicone foam business." The EMR and SenFlex product lines are crosslinked polyolefin-based materials that Cellect introduced in 1995 and 1999, respectively, Cellect said. Cellect will continue to produce the materials for Rogers at Cellect's St. Johnsville, N.Y., plant for the next 12 to 24 months; thereafter Rogers plans to transfer their production to its Bisco Materials Unit in Elk Grove Village, Ill.
