Mactac Acquires Duramark Products Inc. (Formerly Ritrama USA)

07 April 2021: Mactac®, a LINTEC Co. has acquired Duramark Products Inc., previously known as Ritrama USA. The acquisition consists of the company’s Minneapolis, Minnesota and Moore, South Carolina, facilities, including its new world-class coaters and advanced automation technologies. Both locations will be rebranded under the Mactac name, creating one of the largest, most diversified pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) suppliers in North America.

“We are thrilled to make this announcement and to maximize Duramark Products’ recent investments in state-of-the-art equipment and processes,” said Ed LaForge, President and CEO of Mactac. “We will leverage our experience and established network to help both locations reach their full potential, bringing much-needed product diversification and capacity to the industry.”

Mactac’s continued focus on market growth and its diverse account base led to a need to strategically expand operations. With this significant investment, Mactac is affirming its continued commitment to expanding its technology, capacity and adhesive formulation capabilities to be a full-service resource for customers.

“Both companies have a rich history of innovation and expertise in the PSA market,” said Lucio Siano, Duramark Products CEO, who will stay on with Mactac in a strategic role. “Our capabilities could not be more complementary, and I know the combination will provide immediate value to both our employees and our customers. With Mactac’s experience and infrastructure, we will finally be able to maximize the significant investment we made in world-class assets in 2016. There’s a bright future for all of us.”

The Duramark Products locations in Minnesota and South Carolina employ 170 people. Mactac has been planning for months to expand R&D, quality and production at these facilities, including adding a significant number of new jobs.
