Evotech is a liquid coatings manufacturer with a flagship production factory based in Cornwall, Ont. The company also has two service centres located in Quebec City and Mississauga, Ont. All manufacturing equipment and offices will continue to operate under the Protech Group brand.

“We look forward to welcoming the talented employees at Evotech to the Protech Group family upon the close of the transaction,” said David Ades, president, Protech Group. “This acquisition brings us additional strengths in waterborne and solvent liquid coatings technology and formulations, new relationships with multi-national and local customers, and additional presence with strategically located manufacturing and service sites.”

Since 1965, Evotech formulations, notably marketed under the Acrythane brand, have been refined for optimal performance in the windows and doors industry, as well as commercial vehicles and heavy equipment industries.

The company strives to be an all-encompassing coatings provider to meet the most stringent customer and industry requirements.
