CARLISLE, Pa.—Sometimes a name change is all that's needed to keep things in the family—the Carlisle family of businesses, that is.
Carlisle Construction Materials, a division of Carlisle Companies Inc., recently announced that it has brought the third and final division of Accella Performance Materials, which Carlisle acquired in 2017, under the Carlisle name.
Accella Polyurethanes Systems, a coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers business, now is called Carlisle Polyurethanes Systems.
"The Carlisle brand represents industry-leading innovation, supply chain excellence and customer problem-solving, and we are thrilled to leverage those attributes, as well as the storied history of our parent company, in our new name," said Bill Brengel, vice president and general manager for Carlisle Polyurethane Systems. "This name change completes the evolutionary process to incorporate our CASE polyurethane business into the Carlisle family of companies."
Besides the CASE business, Accella Performance Materials also included a spray foam insulation and a tire fill business. In 2019, the spray foam insulation company became Carlisle Spray Foam Insulation, and the tire fill business became Carlisle TyrFil, according to Carlisle.
"Whether delivering project-based solutions or creating economic value through differentiated technology, it is the goal of CPS to deliver a polyurethane solution to help solve your problems with the speed and scale to meet your most challenging demands," Carlisle said in a statement.
As it did under the Accella name, Carlisle said CPS will continue to focus on foams, surface and specialty coatings, binders, casting resins, adhesives, sealants and elastomers. No changes in product formulations or credentials are planned with this name change, according to the company.
Markets for Carlisle Companies Inc. include commercial roofing, specialty polyurethane, architectural metal, aerospace, medical technologies, defense, transportation, industrial, protective coating, auto refinishing, agriculture and construction.
