CFCM Perstorp GEO 400This acquisition further accentuates the company’s strategic presence in polyurethane and alkyds dispersions - a vital step to becoming a specialty leader in various waterborne coating markets. The acquisition significantly bolsters Perstorp’s position within the di-methylpropionic acid platform, allowing further investments into innovation and additional capacities over time. Perstorp’s strategy is to support its customers and broader society by shifting towards renewable raw materials and sustainable technologies. This acquisition serves both of these dimensions, further emphasizing its commitment as the sustainable specialty solution provider within the resins and coatings segment.

“Our strategy is to be the sustainable solutions provider within our focus segments, of which resins and coatings are one. Additives for waterborne resins and coatings technologies are key for future growth. We see great potential in the market for Bis-MPA™ together with the acquired DMPA. This acquisition will both allow further development of our offering and enable long-term investments to safeguard future availability,” says Jan Secher, President and CEO of Perstorp Group.

Bis-MPA has represented a key building block in Perstorp’s offering over the past 20-plus years. The product enables a technology shift from solvent to waterborne formulations within markets such as polyurethane dispersions, PUDs, and waterborne Alkyds.

As of January 2022, Perstorp resumes control of GEO’s DMPA business. GEO will continue to produce DMPA exclusively for Perstorp in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Perstorp and GEO are jointly committed to ensuring a smooth business transition process, focusing on the security of supply and service.

CPS Performance Materials, the parent company of GEO, is a diverse specialty chemical company with businesses serving multiple end markets, including pharmaceuticals, nutrition, specialty coatings and dispersants used in a broad range of applications.

“We are excited to have found a partner in Perstorp who is committed to support the growing demand for DMPA. CPS will continue to focus on building our core businesses. This transaction enables us to streamline our portfolio as we invest in a number of capacity and product expansions throughout the company,” says Jeremy Steinfink, CEO of CPS Performance Materials.
