ST. LOUIS, Mo.—Accella Performance Materials Inc.'s group of recycled rubber companies—RB Rubber, RTH and Ultimate Systems—has been renamed Ultimate RB to reflect the combined capacity of the trio.
Ultimate RB is a unique combination of 30 years manufacturing experience in recycled tire, rubber crumb, EPDM custom colored crumb, along with matting, rubber tiles and rolled goods, Accella said.
The company integrated industry leaders with manufacturing operations in Oregon and Ohio and distribution centers across the U.S., “providing just-in-time shipments with highly competitive regional logistics,” said Hal Stuhl, vice president of Ultimate RB, in a statement.
A unique feature of the newly named business “is its use of the state-of-the-art polyurethane systems from its sister Accella division, MarChem Polyurethane Systems,” Andy Harris, CEO of Accella Performance Materials, said in a statement. “MarChem manufactures custom formulated materials that meet the demanding application requirements in market segments including flooring, matting, sports and recreational surfaces.
“By combining Ultimate RB's rubber products with MarChem's polyurethanes, Accella is able to offer sports and recreational customers one stop shopping for most of their material needs.”
