ST. LOUIS—Beltservice Corp. signed an agreement to acquire Rubber and Plastics Inc., an independent distributor and fabricator of conveyor belting with a specialty in rubber cleat vulcanization and hot vulcanized sidewall.
The closing date is set for June 29, and details were not disclosed in a Beltservice release.
RPI will operate as a division of Beltservice until it can be fully integrated, said Beltservice. In the long term, RPI's locations in Portland, Ore., and Vancouver, Wash., will be merged into one to create a cleating and sidewall fabrication facility. RPI also has locations in Sacramento, Calif., and Boise, Idaho.
The acquisition will build Beltservice's presence in the western U.S., according to the company.
