Coldwater acquires CoorsTek's ceramic drainage elements business

ATLANTA, Georgia (News release) -- Coldwater Group announced the acquisition of the paper machine drainage elements business of CoorsTek in Hillsboro, Oregon, formerly known as Wilbanks Ceramics, which becomes effective October 1, 2017.

CoorsTek will continue to be the primary supplier of the ceramic segments used in all Coldwater Wilbanks drainage elements. The assets required to assemble, grind, and repair these precision ceramic drainage elements will be relocated from Hillsboro, Oregon to Coldwater's Atlanta manufacturing facility.

"The CoorsTek acquisition is part of our strategic plan to be the most reliable supplier of innovative consumables and optimization products. This acquisition allows us to control the manufacturing of all our ceramic drainage elements, and the manufacture of our new and patented Acu-Pulse and Acu-Step on-the-run adjustable blades in Atlanta. Plus, we now have Wilbanks global installation database, perhaps the largest installed base of any supplier, making it easier for us to quickly offer replacement elements," said company President David Withers.

Coldwater is a global leader and innovator in paper machine consumables and engineered products that optimize paper machine performance and reliability.
