Tessenderlo Sells U.S. Vinyls Unit

Department: Business
Keywords: PVC, profiles, chlor-alkalim, specialty chemicals

Belgian chemical firm Tessenderlo has sold its Chelsea Building Products subsidiary to the private equity firm Graham Partners. A maker of polyvinyl chloride windows and doors, Chelsea generated about $50 million in sales last year. Albert Vasseur, Tessenderlo’s director of plastics converting, says Chelsea rebounded strongly from the economic crisis but is not a market leader. Tessenderlo runs a larger building products business in Europe. Separately, the European Commission has approved the sale of Tessenderlo’s PVC and chlorine business to Ineos’ Kerling unit.
