Altana acquires additives provider PolyAd Services

Headquartered in St. Louis, which is also the site of its development and production facilities, PolyAd services has two operating companies in the U.S. and Germany.

Altana (Wesel, Germany) has acquired PolyAd Services (St. Louis, Mo.), a developer and manufacturer of additive solutions for the global plastics market. PolyAd Services will be integrated into the plastics additives business line of Altana Group’s largest division BYK Additives & Instruments. PolyAd Services offers additive solutions for a broad spectrum of plastics applications in a number of industries, including the automotive, construction, packaging and electronic sectors. 

“With the acquisition, we are systematically expanding our product portfolio and application spectrum in the field of plastics additives even more following the recent purchase of the Dutch additive manufacturer Addcomp,” says Stephan Glander, president of BYK Additives & Instruments.
