Dale G. Barnhart, Lydall’s president and chief executive officer, states, “I am very excited to have completed the acquisition of Interface Performance Materials and to welcome Interface employees to the Lydall family. Customer reception has been incredibly positive since our announcement a few weeks ago, and culturally, the two businesses could not be a better fit. Interface delivers a very strong value proposition to its customers, positioning it as a leader in the industry with an excellent reputation for high quality products and proven innovation. We are very excited about the future of Lydall Performance Materials, and we look forward to the successful integration of the combined businesses.”
