The Compound Company’s Acquisition of Exxelor Polymers From Esso Deutschland

CMS advised The Compound Company on the deal.

The Compound Company, a leading developer and manufacturer of compounds, announced it has acquired the production site, product portfolio and customer base for Exxelor™ polymer resins from ESSO Deutschland GmbH , ExxonMobil in Cologne, Germany. The acquisition will increase the global production capacity of The Compound Company to about 70 kilotons per year and significantly expand the group’s reach into new markets.

Exxelor™ polymer resins are chemically modified polyolefin and elastomers based resins used to enhance the performance of engineering thermoplastics and other polymers. As impact modifiers they improve the toughness of compounds. As compatibilizers, coupling agents and adhesion promoters, they increase the bonding strength of non-polar polymers with polyolefins, fillers and reinforcements as well as metals, thermoset rubbers and most polar substrates, including glass.
