DayStrong Acquires Oerlikon Accotex Texparts Business

DayStrong Rubber Products LLC — a new company founded by a group of former managers of Mauldin, S.C.-based Oerlikon Accotex Texparts Inc. in partnership with Gastonia, N.C.-based yarn-manufacturing accessories and equipment supplier A.B. Carter Inc. — has acquired Oerlikon Accotex Texparts’ vulcanized roll and ribbon roll covering businesses. DayStrong —whose management team includes Gordon Culler, president and CEO; Scott Walton, COO; and Keith Crowe, CFO — continues to operate these businesses at Oerlikon Accotex Texparts’ existing location.

DayStrong’s vulcanized rolls are used on Superba® heat-set machinery used in the carpet industry. Its polyvinyl chloride, rubber and cork/rubber ribbon roll covering products provide friction on steel rolls used in textile and other applications.

Oerlikon Accotex Texparts also continues to operate at its existing location in Mauldin, offering its cots, aprons and various rubber products for drawing, roving and spinning applications, and belts
for finishing applications. Sales of these products are handled by John South Lewis, director of sales, United States and Canada; and Jim Bane, director of sales, Latin America.
