Arborite acquires Illinois-based Lamin-Art, Inc.

Arborite, a Montreal-based manufacturer of high pressure laminate (HPL), today announced an agreement to acquire Lamin-Art, Inc., a leading brand of decorative surfaces in North America.

The Schaumburg, Illinois-based Lamin-Art was a privately-held business and will now operate as part of the Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces organization. 

“The Lamin-Art business model nests beautifully into our brand strategy,” said Salvatore Rivera, president of Arborite. “Lamin-Art has earned a distinctive brand cachet in the commercial interior design markets. Their unique offering allows us to provide even more design and product choice to customers.”

Kevin Geijer, a 16 year Wilsonart veteran, has been appointed General Manager of Lamin-Art. The transaction is expected to close in May 2016.
