aluplast® has strengthened its position on the US market through the acquisition of the uPVC system provider Chelsea Building Products. By acquiring the PVC-extruding company, the aluplast group, one of the world's leading provider for PVC window profiles, is expanding its portfolio with a broad range of products, including not only window and door systems but also cladding, cover profiles and roller shutters.
Through the acquisition of the company based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, aluplast is extending its market position on the US market and profits from Chelsea’s strong brand reputation and high-quality products.
The combination of Chelsea's and aluplast's US-wide business activities will give rise to one of the leading product portfolios for uPVC profiles in the US construction sector.
The profile manufacturer will continue to operate independently, maintaining its current identity in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as well as in the marketplace.
"Everyone at Chelsea is looking forward to the partnership with this successful global company," says Peter Dewil, President and CEO of Chelsea Building Products. "This relationship will generate additional technological expertise and research to be integrated into our current processes. It also complements our philosophy of product innovation and continuous improvement, and strengthens our ability to provide the benefits of both to our customers."
Dirk Seitz, CEO of aluplast, adds, "We see Chelsea as a cornerstone of our global strategy. This partnership, and the experience and knowledge of the market that Chelsea brings, will allow us to build a strong platform for substantial growth in the United States. Together, we are excited to combine efforts to pursue long-term, strategic goals. "
