XL Brands Acquisition Completed


Textile Rubber & Chemical Co., Inc. (TRCC) is pleased to announce that Bostik, an Arkema company, a leading global adhesive specialist in construction, consumer and industrial markets, has completed the acquisition of XL Brands as of January 2, 2018.

Over the 16-year history of being a member of the TRCC family of companies, XL Brands has become a leader in adhesives for resilient and soft flooring in the U.S., offering innovative and environmentally friendly solutions for the commercial floor covering industry. In 2017 XL Brands was voted #1 Adhesive Supplier for best overall quality and service. (From the 2017 Focus Contract Dealer Survey of Commercial Flooring Groups)

This strategic transaction offers a tremendous global growth platform for XL Brands and complements Bostik’s acquisition of CMP Specialty Products in May 2017. Joe Tuttolomondo, XL Brands General Manager, will remain with the XL Brands operation for Bostik.

The entire TRCC family congratulates Bostik and looks forward to XL Brands’ continued success.
