Wilsonart gets antitrust OK to acquire Durcon

October 25, 2013 - Temple-based Wilsonart LLC, a decorative laminate company, is looking to diversify by acquiring Durcon, which makes lab countertops and other industrial surfaces.

Financial details were not disclosed when the transaction was announced earlier this month.

The buyout adds even more momentum to Durcon, which has added roughly 100 employees in the past year and currently has 450 total. In April, the company closed a facility in Michigan and consolidated all of its operations into its Taylor headquarters, which has been running 24 hours.

Wilsonart expects the transaction to close in the fourth quarter. It will be financed through a combination of available cash and the company's existing credit facilities.
