Arclin-Belle Acquisition

Chemistry-based polymer technology manufacturer Arclin announced on Sept. 27 that it has completed the purchase of Belle Chemical Company, a producer of methylamines and derivatives located in Belle, West Virginia.

The acquisition of Belle Chemical expands Arclin’s capabilities in North America and is viewed as a key step in the company’s strategy toward expanding its product presence into markets adjacent to its core chemistries and business, company officials said.

“The addition of the Belle Chemical business will provide further diversification into water treatment, health care, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, oil and gas, and electronics, all areas we are excited about in the future,” President and CEO of Arclin Bradley Bolduc said.

The company says the transition efforts are well underway and Arclin anticipates a smooth transition for existing Belle Chemical Company customers. The company began operating as Arclin Amines in September.

“Belle’s customers will benefit from Arclin’s breadth of expertise in chemical manufacture and distribution and interest in rapid deployment of resources in support of the growth strategy,” said Belle Chemical Company Plant Manager Alicha Hunt. The plant has approximately 60 employees.
