WTM has traditionally been a low volume, high mix molder for small to medium-sized parts,’ said WTM vice president of sales, Andy Stroh. ‘Rose Polymer Composites is one of just a few companies in the industry dedicated to compression molding large parts. The alliance fuses the strengths of both companies and allows us to proactively customize components from concept, prototyping and testing to tooling and production methods.’

The aim is for the companies to be a one-stop-shop solution for small and large composite molded components for the electrical power, appliance, mass transit, construction and oil industries.

The merger will reportedly mean an increase in the companies’ capital equipment investments, finishing capabilities and new services such as parts assembly. ‘Combining resources gives us the infrastructure we need to support growth and penetrate new markets,’ said Stroh. 

WTM and Rose Polymer will maintain their separate locations with the goal to consolidate under one roof within the next three to five years. WTM will act as the central contact for customers for both locations.
