HOUSTON (December 1, 2022) — Westlake Royal Building Products™ USA Inc., a Westlake company, announced this week that it has completed the purchase of the Palight® Trimboard business from Palram Americas, Inc. Based in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, Palram is a manufacturer of extruded thermoplastic sheets, panel systems and finished products. The purchase was completed on November 30, 2022.
Through the acquisition of Palight Trimboard product lines, Westlake Royal will expand its portfolio of brands offered under Westlake Royal Trim & Mouldings Solutions™, which provides the finishing touch for the interior and exterior of the home.
“This strategic acquisition will add another high quality brand of PVC trimboard to our growing portfolio of building products,” said Scott Szwejbka, VP and General Manager, Westlake Royal Building Products.
The transaction builds upon a longstanding manufacturing relationship between Westlake Royal and Palram. Manufacturing will continue to occur in Kutztown, as Westlake Royal will assume responsibility for an existing manufacturing facility on the Palram campus.
“We anticipate a seamless transition of the production lines without disruption to customer support or supply, and we look forward to welcoming the associated Palram employees to the Westlake Royal team,” added Szwejbka.
