Laticrete Acquires DuPont Surface Care Business
Bethany, CT, June 5, 2014 – Latricrete and DuPont said they have reached a definitive agreement for Laticrete to purchase the DuPont Surface Care business.
The transaction is expected to close later this month.
“Laticrete knows the stone and tile market well and sells complementary products, and we believe the DuPont Surface Care business can best pursue its potential and most effectively meet market needs through this transaction,” said Thierry F. J. Vanlancker, president, DuPont Chemicals & Fluoroproducts.
“The DuPont Surface Care business has a strong team that will join Laticrete to continue to support these products.”
Laticrete said it will merge the DuPont StoneTech, DuPont Stone Care, and DuPont Paver Armor Pro branded products with its existing portfolio of products.
“This business is an excellent fit with our strategic approach,” said Ed Metcalf, Laticrete president, North America.
DuPont Surface Care offers a range of products to protect and preserve stone and tile.
