Argotec Restructures TPU Film Business (7/30/09)

July 30, 2009
Argotec Inc. has announced the restructuring of its thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) business.

Argotec Inc., Greenfield, MA, recently announced the restructuring of its thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) business.

“Instead of focusing just on products we can make and market, we are concentrating on better matching our film extrusion capabilities, technical expertise and resources with the applications of our customers – strength to strength,” said Bruce Wilby, president and CEO of Argotec Inc. “And that is especially the case with film converters and PSA coating customers who use our TPU paint protection films.”  

Aliphatic polyurethane film has become the industry standard for automotive paint protection worldwide because of its toughness, conformability and weatherability. 

Steve Wolkenbreit, company co-founder and co-chairman, added: “From the beginning, it has been our philosophy to listen to the customer, stay focused on problem solving, and keep technical service as the number-one priority.  That hasn’t changed.  What has changed is the way we integrate groups of like products and resources.  This allows us to better approach customer challenges from an application-oriented perspective that is structured around our six core markets.”
