Arborite: Company Announces New American Acquisition


May 20, 2016 — Arborite, a Montreal-based manufacturer of high-pressure laminate (HPL), announced an agreement to acquire Lamin-Art, Inc., a leading brand of decorative surfaces in North America.

The Schaumburg, Ill.-based Lamin-Art was a privately held business and will now operate as part of the Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces organization. 

"The Lamin-Art business model nests beautifully into our brand strategy," said Salvatore Rivera, president, Arborite. "Lamin-Art has earned a distinctive brand cachet in the commerical interior design markets. Their unique offering allows us to provide even more design and product choice to customers."

Kevin Geijer, a 16-year Wilsonart veteran, has been appointed general manager of Lamin-Art.

The transaction is expected to close in May 2016.

Lamin-Art, a U.S.-based company, has supplied the commercial interior design and architectural professions with innovative design-statement laminates for more than 50 years. The company's exclusive designs can be found in high-profile retail stores, hotels, restaurants, showrooms, trade show exhibits, and more.

From its base in Montreal, Arborite, a business unit of Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces, has been bringing decorative high-pressure laminate to the design community with contemporary surfacing solutions since 1947.
