DES PLAINES, Ill. (April 17)—Finzer Roller Inc. has purchased a South Carolina-based fiberglass sleeve maker, boosting its presence in the growing market of the rubber-covered roller industry. Finzer acquired Carolina Fiberglass Technologies L.L.C. April 1, and plans to relocate the operation to its Kernersville, N.C., rubber roller facility within 60 days, said Finzer Vice President John Finzer. CFT's four employees at its Gaffney, S.C., site will be offered employment in Kernersville, located about 150 miles away. The rubber roller maker—based in the Chicago suburb of Des Plaines—made the deal to expand its offerings in fiberglass sleeves and build on demand for the product.
