Finzer Roller Expands with Two Acquisitions

The one-stop resource for rolls and roll coverings has acquired certain assets of Republic Roller and Roll Solutions, expanding its capacity to service the wood, furniture and allied sectors of the industry.

Finzer Roller Inc., one of the largest manufacturers of rubber, urethane, and silicone rollers in the United States, in a move to expand its capacity to service the wood, furniture and allied sectors of the industry, recently completed the acquisition of two companies.

This past September Finzer Roller acquired certain assets of Republic Roller in Three Rivers, MI., including rubber formulas, manufacturing specifications and unique manufacturing equipment to ensure customers could secure like-kind roll coverings. The Republic Roller facility was closed and sold following the sale. Republic customers will have future orders processed by Finzer Roller’s Itasca, IL facility.

And then in December, Finzer Roller acquired certain assets of Roll Solutions of Carrollton, GA, including the plant, equipment, inventory, work in process and other assets. The entire Roll Solutions’ staff, including the owner Brad Vansaghi, have been offered employment by Finzer Roller.

“Roll Solutions has been a capable competitor of Finzer Roller for more than 20 years,” said John Finzer, CEO of Finzer Roller. “Their strengths included film, flexible packaging, textile and general industrial rollers. We are thrilled to add them to our team.” Finzer said this acquisition is strategically important as the company has experienced significant sales growth in the Southeast. “The addition of Roll Solutions’ staff will boost our manufacturing capacity and help us to better serve our customers in the region.”
