Col-Met Engineered Finishing Solutions Acquires RP Paint Arrestors

Col-Met Engineered Finishing Solutions announces the acquisition of RP Paint Arrestors that will allow Col-Met to expand its product portfolio by offering a complete line of exhaust paint arrestors.

Col-Met Engineered Finishing Solutions announces the acquisition of RP Paint Arrestors, effective June 30, 2017. As of this date, RP Paint Arrestors, a business of Research Products, will be officially owned and operated by Col-Met Engineered Finishing Solutions.

According to the company, this acquisition will allow Col-Met to expand its product portfolio by offering a complete line of exhaust paint arrestors. RP Paint Arrestors are disposable paint overspray collectors and designed as a cost effective, efficient way to handle overspray requirements, Col-Met says in its announcement. Well-known RP Paint Arrestor products include the 3000-3700 Series, Series S and Spra-Cube products.

The acquisition will benefit valued customers by allowing Col-Met to offer a strong portfolio of paint arrestors that can be purchased with paint booths or to replace arrestors in current booths.

The dry filter system is designed to offer a significant improvement over virtually all types and methods of overspray collection systems. RP Paint Arrestors also aim to reduce operating and disposal costs since the product is degradable and can be incinerated. Moving forward, the company says, Col-Met paint booths will be engineered to optimize the efficiency of these filters and ensure lower maintenance cost and higher performance.

“We are very excited to add this product line to our business. It is an obvious extension to our current product line and will only enhance our ability to serve and support our distributors,” says Charles Cecil, president of Col-Met.

Steve Houston, Col-Met’s chief marketing officer adds, “Col-Met has been on an aggressive growth trajectory for the past few years and an acquisition like this was always part of our strategy. We are extremely excited about this addition and the business opportunities it will bring our distribution partners.”
