Colorado-based Krayden, Inc., a distributor of specialty chemicals to the aerospace, electronics, transportation, and industrial sectors, has acquired Northern Composites of New Hampshire, a distributor of quality composite materials.
“We truly admire Northern Composites, and plan to leverage their expertise in Composites, along with their manufacturing and kitting capabilities. They are a perfect complement to our own company culture and approach to business,” said Wayne Wagner, president of Krayden.
Krayden customers will now have access to the Northern Composites brand of vacuum bagging technologies and accessories, which include bagging films, release films, sealant tapes, breathers, prepregs, peel plies, and kitting.
In addition, Northern Composites’ customers will now have access to the one of the largest stocking distributors of Dow silicones, Henkel adhesives, and technologies in all markets, as well as products from Huntsman, Humiseal (Chase), Alpha Metals, ITW Plexus /Devcon, HB Fuller, Bostik, 3M, Sika, and others.
“Krayden is a great fit with their 18 Global facilities and 60+ outside technical sales representatives,” said Richard Hewett, GM of Northern Composites. “They have a stronger relationship with top tier suppliers and a fantastic reputation for providing technical service and assistance. Our customers will continue to receive a high level of service and have access to a much broader product line.”
All Northern Composites’ employees are staying on and the company will continue to operate at its existing facilities (Hampton, NH, Greensboro, NC). The company will also continue to serve its Mitsubishi prepreg customers directly. It will keep the Northern Composites name and will comply with the terms and conditions of all existing and future customer purchase orders.
