May 2, 2013

Arsenal Capital Partners recently announced the acquisition of Arnco, one of the world’s largest suppliers of polyurethane products. Arnco is Arsenal’s first acquisition under the umbrella of Dash Multi-Corp, a platform portfolio company focusing on the specialty technologies of polyurethane systems, vinyl plastisols and recycled rubber products.

Established in 1971, Arnco operates through five main business units: Arnco Tire Flatproofing, reportedly the world’s largest manufacturer of tire flatproofing systems; Arnco Performance Polymers, a leading innovator and manufacturer of high-performance polyurethane systems; Carefree Tire, a supplier of lightweight solid, micro-cellular polyurethane tires; Arnco Construction Products, which creates flexible and rigid roofing spray foams and UV protective coatings; and Arnco Europe, which provides manufacturing and customer support for three continents.

“Arnco has a long history of innovation in the polyurethane market, providing great solutions and service to its customers,” said John Televantos, a partner at Arsenal Capital Partners and co-head of the firm’s Specialty Industrials Group. “The combination of Dash and Arnco represents an important milestone in our strategy to further build a leading polyurethane business offering a broad portfolio of products and technologies that serve multiple end markets.”
