Shakespeare Acquires Ems-Griltech Product Line
Shakespeare Monofilament, Columbia, S.C., recently acquired Switzerland-based Ems-Griltech's Grilon polyamide monofilament product line. The purchase includes all machinery, product operations, recipes and know-how. Shakespeare currently is relocating all equipment to its England-based facility, Shakespeare Monofilament U.K. Ltd.
Ems-Griltech will supply Shakespeare with Grilon monofilament products under a toll manufacturing agreement until the transition is completed in April of this year. On an ongoing basis, Ems-Griltech also will provide the company with raw materials and technical support to ensure high-quality products.
