Ravago Americas Announces Acquisition of Bolcof-Port Polymers
ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 19, 2018--Ravago Americas, LLC is pleased to announce the acquisition of Bolcof-Port Polymers (Bolcof) based in Azusa, CA. Bolcof-Port Polymers will become part of Ravago’s Amco Polymers’ business, a leading North American distributor of commodity, engineering, and specialty polymers. Bolcof has been in operation since the 1960s and was one of the first resin distributors in Southern California.
“We continue to make strategic acquisitions that add to the strength of our distribution companies,” says, Jim Duffy, President, and CEO of Ravago Holdings Americas. “Bolcof’s portfolio, market understanding and reputation, especially on the West Coast, will both complement and strengthen the Amco business.”
“We believed that Amco Polymers was a perfect place for the Bolcof business. We believe their philosophy, strong customer focus, and diverse supplier portfolio is unmatched in the industry,” says Jeff Tunstall, current GM of Bolcof.
“Bolcof is an exciting addition to Amco Polymers. The service model they use, especially the capabilities out of their Azusa, CA facility, provides us with a strong foundation to service our customers, and expand the reach of our business,” says Kevin Wettstein, Vice President/General Manager of Amco Polymers. “We were impressed with their culture and their people and look forward to bringing their sales and operations teams into the Amco Polymers family.”
Bolcof’s facility in Azusa will provide Amco with additional on-site rail storage/access, local warehousing, packaging, and van/bulk truck delivery capabilities. Their sales coverage spans most of the western U.S. but also includes key accounts along the East Coast and Canada. Bolcof will continue to operate as they do today until integration into Amco Polymers is completed later this year.
