Krayden Inc., a Denver, Colorado-based distributor of specialty chemicals to the aerospace, electronics, transportation and industrial sectors, has acquired Northern Composites, Hampton, New Hampshire. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Northern Composites is a distributor of composite materials and a manufacturer of Northern Composites-branded vacuum bagging materials and accessories.

Added Richard Hewett, GM of Northern Composites: “Krayden is a great fit with their 18 global facilities and 60+ outside technical sales representatives. 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.”
