Techmer PM, Clinton, Tenn., has acquired Accel Corp. (also known as Accel Color) of Avon, Ohio. Both firms produce color and additive concentrates. Accel has plants in Ohio, Illinois, California, and Tennessee. Techmer also has a facility in California. “Accel strengthens our national manufacturing presence by giving Techmer two well-established sites in the Midwest, which will be added to our nationwide network,” said Techmer president and CEO John Manuck. He noted that Accel also brings proficiency in producing small orders of custom color concentrates. “Transaction velocity and small-order capability are increasingly important to North American molders who have been battered by global competition,” Manuck added.
