Texas Business reports:  A Massachusetts firm bought the assets of a San Antonio engineered products company.

FLEXcon, a manufacturer of pressure-sensitive films and adhesives, acquired the business assets of Arlon Engineered Coated Products and Arlon SignTech Ltd. of San Antonio forming FLEXcon Industrial LLC.

The move expands FLEXcon’s manufacturing capabilities to produce engineered products. The new FLEXcon Industrial LLC has hired all of the executives and employees.

 For more than 50 years, Arlon Engineered Coated Products manufactured a range of industrial products for numerous industries. The company coats and laminates a variety of films, foams, synthetic materials, and foils.

Arlon SignTech Ltd. produces flexible PVC substrates used in outdoor signage, and is a supplier to Arlon Graphics LLC. The new FLEXcon Industrial, LLC will continue to manufacture and sell its full line of adhesive tapes and laminates.

“FLEXcon is excited to announce the formation of FLEXcon Industrial, LLC,” said FLEXcon chief executive Neil McDonough in a prepared statement. “The specialty equipment, and skill set of the employees enhances our capabilities to produce adhesive tapes and laminates and positions us for further growth in the industrial sector.”

FLEXcon is a family-owned, privately-held business formed in 1956, with 1200 employees throughout North America and Europe. The company makes coating, laminating, and finishing of wide-web roll-to-roll polymeric materials, with expertise in graphics and label applications as well as bonding, barrier, optical, and electronics applications.

The manufacturer also produces one-of-a-kind custom film and adhesive products as well as the large selection of standard off-the-shelf products.
