Lamin-X acquires Ricochet Protective Films

Mar 27, 2012

Lamin-x Protective Films, Blairsville Ga., finalized its acquisition of Ricochet Protective Films of Calgary, Alb. Lamin-x manufactures auto protection accessories for the restyling market using clear and colored adhesive-backed protective films. Ricochet Protective Films has been a manufacturer of a variety of protective film products for use in many different markets and industries.

Chris Wadle, founder and CEO of Lamin-x, said “This is a wonderful opportunity for Lamin-x to expand its manufacturing capabilities and also expand its business further into the unique applications of the clear protective film markets. Ricochet’s manufacturing and distribution structure was a perfect fit for our own current business model, so it was a natural decision for the both of us.”

The Ricochet manufacturing and administrative duties have been relocated to Georgia in Lamin-x’s newly expanded facilities. Lamin-x is currently in the process of establishing a distribution center in Alberta to support the existing and expanding Canadian-based customer network.
