Kymera International, a speciality materials company headquartered in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA, has acquired CASL Surface Technologies Corp (CASL), headquartered in Alberta, Canada, a manufacturer of wear-resistant metallic and ceramic alloy coatings.

CASL develops and commercialises metallic coating process, alloy and capital equipment intellectual property purposed towards mitigating the impact of extreme wear on mission-critical industrial components. The company has two manufacturing facilities in Alberta and a production site in Houston, Texas. The acquisition is expected to enhance Kymera’s coatings and surface technologies product offerings.

“CASL’s leadership team has built a tremendous company of talented people with industry-leading knowledge in thermal spray applications. This acquisition will allow us to accelerate our coatings initiatives both organically and through M&A,” stated Barton White, CEO of Kymera. “Combining the unique wear-resistant speciality materials Kymera has organically developed in-house, with the innovative alloys and application expertise of CASL, will give our customers end-to-end performance and value.”

Scott McLaughlan, president & CEO of CASL, commented, “CASL is thrilled to join the Kymera family where we expect the combination of our highly successful materials science-oriented teams, coupled with Kymera’s new product development focus and its global reach, will unlock the potential in CASL IP and generate extraordinary results.”

Adam Shebitz, a partner at Palladium, added, “The acquisition of CASL, Kymera’s sixth under Palladium’s ownership, is aligned with the company’s value creation plan to become a leading speciality materials manufacturer and solutions provider. CASL’s offering compliments the investments Kymera has made in its organic new product development capabilities, and unlocks exciting new growth opportunities.”
