Lehmann & Voss (Pawcatuck, Conn., USA) announced on Sept. 12 that it has acquired Performance Compounding LLC (Pawcatuck, Conn.). Lehmann & Voss says the acquisition will further expand its position in the important U.S. market and continue its strategy of internationalization.

In 2013, Lehmann & Voss founded the sales company Lehvoss North America. The second key step in the systematic development of the U.S. market is taking place. “The involvement in Performance Compounding is an ideal strategic addition to achieve the growth targets for our LUVOCOM high-performance compounds in the USA,” says Dr. Alexander Sunder, global director of the business unit.

Performance Compounding produces a wide range of melt-processable fluoropolymers and engineering plastics. Close cooperation has linked it with the Lehmann & Voss subsidiary Lehvoss North America for two years.

Through its new acquisition, Lehmann & Voss is aiming for continuity and reliability. The company will continue operating under the name known in the USA. The long-standing managing director, Dr. Lefteris Valsamis, will now function as general manager of the company.
