Arborite Announces New American Acquisition
June 3, 2016
Arborite, a Montreal-based manufacturer of high pressure laminate (HPL), has announced an agreement to acquire Lamin-Art, Inc., a North American brand of decorative surfaces. The Schaumburg, Illinois-based Lamin-Art was a privately held business and will now operate as part of the Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces organization.
“The Lamin-Art business model nests beautifully into our brand strategy,” said Salvatore Rivera, president of Arborite. “Lamin-Art has earned a distinctive brand cachet in the commercial interior design markets. Their unique offering allows us to provide even more design and product choice to customers.”
For more then 50 years, Lamin-Art has supplied the commercial interior design and architectural professions with design-statement laminates.
“Lamin-Art is proud of our exceptional employees and loyal customers,” said Donald Krog, former owner and president of Lamin-Art. “Together with Arborite’s resources and expertise, the business will continue to evolve and grow.”
