RTP adds thin films capability to its sheet division

RTP Company (Winona, MN) announced on Sept. 22 that it acquired Wiman Corp. (Sauk Rapids, MN), a custom plastic-films extruder for the medical, industrial, and consumer markets. The acquisition will combine RTP’s existing Sheet Division with Wiman’s line of flexible plastic films and its extrusion prowess.

Hugh Miller, RTP president and CEO, said, ”Wiman strengthens our business position in the sheet and film industry by letting us manufacture down to 3 mm, and quite importantly, we will now be adding PVC to our product mix.”

Wiman, which specializes in the development of specialty films using PVC, polyolefins, and polyurethane, serves a niche market for companies requiring runs and products such as helmet liners that often come in quantities lower than industry standards.

RTP Company is a global leader in specialty thermoplastic compounding and has seven manufacturing plants on three continents, plus sales representatives throughout North America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific.—Clare Goldsberry; [email protected]
