Houston, TX- Meridian Adhesives Group (Meridian) announced today the acquisition of Design Polymerics, a manufacturer of high-performance sealants, adhesives, insulation mastics and indoor air quality products.

Design Polymerics was acquired by Lyle Davis in 1993, and the company has grown steadily over the past three decades. Through the company’s dynamic product line, commitment to sustainability, technical expertise and close partnerships with its customers, Design Polymerics has become a leader in the HVAC, Insulation and Indoor Air Quality industries.

“We are very excited about joining the Meridian team,” said Davis. “We believe Design Polymerics found the perfect partner to continue its growth and technical experience in our industry. We look forward to implementing manufacturing capabilities throughout the United States to better serve our customers while introducing new, innovative products to remain a leader in the HVAC, Insulation and IAQ industries.”

Design Polymerics will join Meridian’s Industrial Product Assembly Division alongside American Sealants, Inc.
