Ravago Americas LLC (Orlando, FL) announced that it has acquired Bay State Polymer Distribution Inc. (Westlake, OH). Bay State will become part of Ravago's Amco Polymers business, a North American distributor of commodity, engineering and specialty polymers. "We continue to search for high-quality companies that are a strategic fit for our company," said Jim Duffy, President of Ravago Americas. "Bay State has a strong reputation in the marketplace and will be a perfect complement to the Amco business."

Kevin Wettstein, Vice President and General Manager of Amco Polymers, commented: "At Amco, our people, our products and our philosophy drive our success in the polymer distribution market. Bay State fits all three elements, as [it] brings us a very talented and technical team, a unique product focus and the same passion for delivering solutions necessary for customer growth."

Ravago explained that Amco Polymers is an "agile, solutions-focused distributor and compounding company with [considerable] breadth in resin selection" and a history that spans more than 60 years. Amco serves several major markets including automotive, packaging, industrial, healthcare, electrical/electronics and consumer durables.
