Trelleborg Completes CRP Acquisition

Friday, January 20, 2006
Trelleborg´s acquisition of CRP through its Engineered Systems business area has now been concluded. CRP Group is an engineering company with annual sales of slightly more than $130 million and 500 employees, primarily in the UK and the US. This will make Trelleborg a global market leader in polymer systems and solutions for offshore oil and gas projects. The purchase price totals approximately $123.6 million in the form of cash and through the assumption of loan-repayment obligations. CRP was founded in 1974 and is currently controlled by Barclays Private Equity. The company has five production units in Skelmersdale (also head office) and Barrow-in-Furness, in the UK, as well as in Randolph and Canton, Massachusetts, and Houston, Texas, in the US. Sales and marketing offices are located in important offshore areas. The acquisition is expected to provide synergies with existing operations in such areas as sales/marketing and technical development.
