Novacel strengthens its global leadership with the acquisition of Main Tape, Inc. by its holding company Chargeurs Protective Films

Monday, July 18th, 2016 Chargeurs Protective Films completed the purchase of Main Tape from Nekoosa Coated Products. Based in Cranbury, New Jersey (USA), Main Tape specializes in the design and manufacture of plastic film for surface protection applications. Founded in 1987, Main Tape has successfully developed a comprehensive product and solution offering for industrial customers based primarily in the United States but also in Mexico.

The acquisition will strengthen Chargeurs Protective Films’ position, and thereby Novacel, as world's leading manufacturer of surface protection films due to the market presence, product offering and leadership. It will bring the whole business additional marketing and manufacturing capacity along with solid synergy benefits.

Laurent Derolez, Chairman of Novacel, Managing Director of Chargeurs Protective Films, said "This is an exciting development for our company and presents tremendous opportunities to accelerate growth & expand our market presence. We will of course remain focused on our customers and reinforce and build on our offerings to deliver even greater value and enhanced quality of service."
