Applied Material Solutions recently announced it has purchased Performance Process Inc. (PPI) in Mundelein, Ill.; and Nottingham Co., PPI’s chemicals division in Atlanta. The two companies reportedly join Trans-Chemco as divisions of Applied Material Solutions.

“We are thrilled to add these two leading companies under our umbrella,” says Tom Rebernak, president. “Expanding our line with the products developed by Performance Process Inc. and Nottingham Co. allows us to offer a wider range of antifoaming products to our customers.”

Performance Process is reportedly a leading distributor for antifoaming and chemical products. Nottingham Co. produces treated silica at a new, state-of-the-art facility for a range of markets. Applied Material Solutions has reportedly retained all management and employees at both companies; all contacts, email addresses and phone numbers for support and orders will remain the same.
