AGY has completed its previously announced acquisition of Owens Corning’s North American continuous filament mat (CFM) business.

Under the agreement, AGY will acquire Owens Corning’s Huntingdon, Pennsylvania CFM facility and its Marbles Furnace located in Anderson, South Carolina, which supplies the Huntingdon facility with glass fibre marbles used in the production of CFM.

“The completion of this acquisition marks another important milestone in our drive to expand and enhance our product portfolio,” said AGY President and Chief Executive Officer Doug Mattscheck. “We are squarely focused on quickly seizing the attractive opportunities this transaction has created in terms of global market potential and significant cost synergies. It will make us a stronger company with increased opportunities for growth and better technologies to offer our global customers.”

Under the terms of the sale, AGY owns exclusive rights to the CFM products solely manufactured at the Huntingdon facility. All products produced at the facility are now AGY products. “We want to assure our North American and Asia-Pacific customers that AGY has the capacity and ability to continue to make CFM,” said Drew Walker, AGY Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The Huntingdon facility is set up for manufacturing and dedicated customer support for the complete range of CFM materials. We look forward to maintaining and enhancing the services and support provided to Owens Corning’s existing customers.”
