Winn & Coales International, a leading manufacturer of corrosion prevention and sealing products, has acquired the global Viscotaq™ business, including Amcorr Products and Services Inc (‘Amcorr’), manufacturer of viscoelastic protective coatings.
Amcorr, based in San Antonio, USA is the formulator and manufacturer of a viscoelastic protective coating technology, Viscotaq™. This patented product range is used for corrosion prevention and sealing applications on vital infrastructure across a broad range of sectors. The unique, self-healing technology of Viscotaq™ offers asset owners outstanding, long-term protection against corrosion, says the firm.
Amcorr was originally established in June 2000 in San Antonio, USA and thereafter rapidly became the North American market leader of viscoelastic coatings and sealants in the corrosion industry, said the firm. Edwin Welles, President of Amcorr and co-inventor of the Viscotaq™ technology said he was “honoured to be part of the Winn & Coales family”. He continued: “A similar business culture, with a privately-owned structure and a technology driven mentality was a natural fit for us. The acquisition will give Amcorr the opportunity to grow rapidly, both nationally and internationally and above all, guarantee dedicated service and supply to existing and future clients across the globe. I personally feel privileged to make the next step in my career at Winn & Coales, a leader in our industry with an outstanding reputation.”
