Beckmann Converting Acquires Gem Urethane

Beckmann Converting, Inc. has purchased Gem Urethane Corporation from Fab Industries.   Beckmann Converting will offer an extended range of services and capabilities in ultrasonic and hot-melt laminating.  The Chief Executive Officer of Beckmann Converting, Inc. is Klaus Beckmann.  Klaus served as CEO and General Manager of Gem Urethane for over 30 years.

Interviewed at the signing, Mr. Beckmann said “I am proud that we can now take our technology, our expertise, and our resources out on our own to satisfy our customers directly.  This is our path toward continuing our growth in the market for precision and high performance laminates of non-wovens, films, and fabrics as we expand our capabilities.”

“My focus has been solving the customer’s problems by reliably delivering multi-layer composites that may be hard to make for most manufacturers.  We have an organization that has grown steadily to meet these challenges.  Now, we can make best use of this base to help develop new products for new and existing customers.”

The new company will operate out of the existing facility at 14 Park Drive, Amsterdam, New York.  Several projects are scheduled to come on-line in the next few months to expand the current laminating capacity.
