Trelleborg´s acquisition of the remaining 70 percent of Elastomer Compounding s.r.o. (ECS) of the Czech Republic from Rado of Germany has now been concluded. Trelleborg has owned 30 percent of ECS since 1998. ECS’s mixing unit is located in Lesina.
ECS produces rubber mixtures primarily for profile manufacturers focusing on the construction and industrial sectors. Annual sales are approximately SEK 75 M and the unit has 40 employees.
Synergies will be generated in the form of shared purchasing and cost-efficient supplies to existing units, primarily in the Trelleborg Building Systems and Trelleborg Automotive business areas, and the acquisition also supports Trelleborg Automotive’s projected manufacturing plant in Romania, plans for which were recently decided.
