Lydall Inc., through its wholly-owned subsidiary Texel Technical Materials, Inc., has completed the sale of Texel Geosol, Inc. (“Geosol”) on May 9, 2019 to FC Géosynthétiques, Inc. (“FC”). Geosol installs geosynthetic products in the civil engineering and environmental protection sectors, principally within the province of Quebec, Canada.
“The divestiture of Geosol follows Lydall’s strategy to focus on our core technologies and capabilities that improve our effectiveness and positioning as a specialty materials provider,” says Dale G. Barnhart, president and CEO of Lydall, Inc.
“We have found the ideal purchaser that shares our passion for this business and its people. FC’s deep expertise in geosynthetics installation and their local market knowledge positions them well as the new owner of Geosol. Additionally, Texel’s continued supply of geosynthetic materials to FC ensures end customers will maintain access to high quality products and service,” says Joe Abbruzzi, president of Lydall’s Technical Nonwovens segment.
