WEST HARTFORD, CT: Rose Mill Company, a Connecticut-based processor of industrial chemicals and minerals, announced the acquisition of rubber pre-weigh additives processor PPS/Chempac of Lebanon, TN. The acquisition provides for the continued production of pre-weigh additives as well as an expansion of capabilities for each business.
“This acquisition is great for both companies,” said Coley Karr, General Manager of PPS/Chempac. “Rose Mill is an ISO certified company with a global reach, and PPS/Chempac’s customers will benefit from the expanded range of processing capabilities.”
“We’re excited too” says Cindy Carbone, Office Manager at Rose Mill Company. “Rose Mill is active in a number of different markets, but now we’ll have the equipment and expertise from PPS/Chempac to serve the rubber pre-weigh market.”
Rose Mill Company, a member of the National Association of Chemical Distributors, is a global leader in the supply and processing of borates and borate-based products. Additionally, Rose Mill offers toll processing services including pulverizing, screening, mixing, bagging, filling and labeling of dry granular and powdered minerals and chemicals. PPS/Chempac has been offering pre-weigh services, such as numbered and lot-traceable low melting batch inclusion bags, to tire manufacturers since 2003.
The acquisition of PPS/Chempac is the latest in a string of additions and investments by Rose Mill as part of its growth initiative. Recently completed growth objectives include the addition of a semi-automatic filling and labeling line as well as the addition of a third chemical/mineral bagging line.
