Dorfner Acquires US-Based Firm

Gebrüder Dorfner GmbH & Co. Kaolin- und Kristallquarzsand- Werke KG, a successful family-owned company headquartered in Hirschau/DE, aquired all of the assets ACS International, based in Tucson/US. The new Dorfner company will be known as ACS International Products LP and will also assume responsibility for future US sales of the products that Dorfner produces in Germany for the construction chemicals and composite materials segments.

A privately held business with revenues in the double-digit millions USD, ACS International has been one of the USA’s top manufacturers of decorative, organic fillers made from polyester-resin granulates for some years. The products are primarily used in the production of bath and sanitary products, furniture and other cast polymer applications. In addition to both being family-owned, Dorfner and ACS also uphold similar company philosophies. They both focus particularly on product innovation and individualization; new solutions to meet customer demands are developed in close cooperation with the client and continually improved until market-ready. Dr Erich Oetzel, CEO of Dorfner, said: “with this acquisition, Dorfner will be able to meet two of its organizational goals simultaneously: for one, to significantly expand the international activities of Dorfner, and secondly to strengthen the strategic business area of composite materials.”
