Hallstar Acquires Polymer Additive Facility and New Product Lines

Hallstar has finalized its purchase of LANXESS’ ester manufacturing facility in Greensboro, North Carolina. The acquisition expands the Chicago-based company’s manufacturing capacity, product portfolio, and employee roster. As part of the acquisition, Hallstar is gaining new product lines of brominated flame retardants and phthalate-free plasticizers, including benzoate and citrate esters.

Hallstar announced its intention to purchase the Greensboro facility in July and completed its acquisition on October 1, 2022, after a brief transition period. The former LANXESS facility began shipping products on its first day of business under the Hallstar banner.

The new product lines that Hallstar has acquired will further strengthen its portfolio of well-known brands for industrial customers.
