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.”
