Architectural and industrial coatings manufacturer Tnemec Company, Inc. (Kansas City, Missouri, USA) recently announced the acquisition of coatings company ProPolymer Coatings (St. Louis, Missouri, USA). Through this acquisition, Tnemec is able to access ProPolymer’s line of tank linings, exterior coatings, and containment products.

“Tnemec and the ProPolymer team are both excited about this endeavor,” says Tnemec President Chase Bean. “We believe in the quality of ProPolymer Coatings and we look forward to offering their innovative technology to new and current customers.”
