NEW HAVEN, Conn.—Trelleborg A.B.'s engineered fabrics business has finalized the acquisition of the majority of Uretek Archer L.L.C. group, consisting of Uretek L.L.C. and Archer Rubber Company L.L.C.
The engineered fabrics operation, which is part of the Trelleborg Coated Systems division, will broaden its range of urethane- and rubber-coated fabrics with the purchase, a company spokeswoman said. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Trelleborg acquired assets and businesses from Uretek Archer, she said, but it did not buy all parts of the holding company.
Uretek, which employs about 160, produces urethane-coated fabrics; Archer, with a work force of about 70, makes rubber-coated fabrics. Archer's plant is in Milford, Mass., while Uretek operates out of a facility in New Haven.
They primarily serve the defense and government, aerospace, outdoor recreation and health care markets.
