GracoRoberts, Arlington, Texas, a specialty chemicals distributor that serves the global aerospace market, has acquired Pacific Coast Composites.
Headquartered in Puyallup, Wash., Pacific Coast Composites distributes leading brands, including 3M, Hexcel, Aerovac and Isovolta. PCC stocks nearly 400 products from 20 suppliers and 15 product categories, including adhesives, bagging materials, pre-pregs, resins, honeycomb core and more.
“We’ve developed a business centered on providing our customers with smaller, customized composite material sizes in a near 24-hour turnaround time,” said Kevin Fochtman, president of Pacific Coast Composites.
“We are thrilled to welcome Pacific Coast Composites into the GracoRoberts family of brands,” said Jason Caldwell, president and CEO of GracoRoberts. “PCC has uniquely solved for long-lead times and excessive waste in the complex composites material space. GracoRoberts has adopted an online-first strategy to take those products to market. Together, we are significantly enhancing the overall customer experience by making purchasing the specific materials they need easier and faster, with the quality they expect.”
