TRELLEBORG, Sweden (June 5, 2008) — Trelleborg A.B. has completed its acquisition of MacDermid Offset Printing Blankets operations from MacDermid Inc. for about $65 million.
The U.S.-based business has about 400 employees and posted sales of about $80 million in 2007.
The purchase gives Trelleborg a stronger position in polymer-coated composite fabrics with MacDermid's production facilities in the U.S. and France.
