A New Acquisition for Solmax
Montreal -- Solmax Inc., a world leader in geomembrane manufacturing, announces the acquisition of the assets of Brawler Inc. These assets, located in Houston, Texas, will belong to the newly incorporated company, Solmax USA LLC. They must undergo a major upgrade in the months ahead to be able to operate to the quality standard required by customers used to doing business with the Solmax brand.
Thanks to these newly acquired assets, by reducing delivery times and shipping costs, Solmax USA LLC will be able to provide effcient coverage to the geomembrane needs of the oil and gas extraction and waste management sectors in the Southern and Southwestern United States.
“By this acquisition, beyond our commitment to push the industry toward consolidation, the first thing we wanted to achieve was to get closer to our customers, primarily those operating in the oil and gas industry in the United States. Our existing customers and all the new customers with whom we will have the chance to do business shortly have very high requirements in terms of delivery times, costs, and quality of service,” says Jean Louis Vangeluwe, CEO of Solmax Inc. “Solmax will not replace Brawler. We have a different philosophy and higher quality standards recognized worldwide. Our new presence in Texas is our way of showing all our customers that we are committed to the U.S. market. For the past 35 years, Solmax has improved its products and costs in the geomembrane industry. It is a brand recognized by major customers worldwide, with a great passion for serving its customers and outstanding expertise. We lacked a physical presence in the United States. Now it’s a done deal!”
