Fluorotherm acquires Rhem Plastics to expand fabricated tubing product capacity
Parsippany, NJ - Fluorotherm Polymers Inc. is excited to announce that it has purchased the assets of Rhem Plastics, based in Plainfield, CT as part of its expansion strategy.
This acquisition widens the base of Fluorotherm’s fabricated tubing products, such as retractable coils and shaped tubing for fluid handling applications, including DI water and high purity liquids. These product designs are complementary to Fluorotherm’s current fluoropolymer tubing product lines.
“We moved on this acquisition as soon as the opportunity came up as it aligns well with our near-term vision of planned growth in market segments areas that will benefit from our unique technical and knowledge skills in fluoropolymers,” said Prabhat Shukla, President of Fluorotherm Polymers. “We expect that expanded fabricated product line will continue to generate new interest in the growing “green technology” market, which includes companies operating in the solar power and energy storage space.”
Fluorotherm designs, manufactures and supplies fluoropolymer tubing of PTFE, FEP, PFA, PVDF, ETFE and other high performance polymer materials. Fabricated products will be available on Fluorostore, Fluorotherm’s online portal at www.fluorostore.com, as well as directly through Fluorotherm for larger quantities. Fluorotherm will relocate the assets to its Parsippany, NJ location throughout the next year.
