Further expansion of composite activities

3A Composites announced the successful acquisition of Athlone Extrusions Ltd. by its parent company Schweiter Technologies.

14.08.2017

Athlone Extrusions is based in Athlone, Ireland and is one of the leading manufacturers of coloured opaque multilayer plastic sheeting in Europe. The plastic sheets are primarily used by thermoformers who manufacture parts for the automotive industry (low series recreational, agriculture, and construction vehicles), sanitary ware industry (shower trays, bath panels), office equipment, point of sale and furniture industries.

Athlone has highly developed expertise in the manufacture of complex multilayer sheets in customer specific colours which combine the advantages of consistent embedded colour, surface finish, ease of thermoforming, light weight and recyclability.

Following the successful acquisition and integration of Foamalite in 2012 and Polycasa in 2015, in acquiring Athlone another major step has been taken to extend the product range of 3A Composites. The coloured opaque multilayer materials produced by Athlone will ideally complement the existing product range of the Transport & Industry division.

In this way, 3A Composites will continue to strengthen the position as a diverse and leading manufacturer of materials for display, building and industrial applications.
