Quanex, owner of Edgetech and Liniar in the UK, has announced it has bought the assets of LMI Custom Mixing, a polymer mixer with a long history of service to the fenestration industry.

Edgetech Managing Director Chris Alderson said: “LMI is a perfect fit for Quanex, not least because they were a long-term supplier already, and had previously been part of a group with Edgetech in the past.

“The acquisition significantly enhances Quanex’s existing expertise in materials science and process engineering, and allows us to further expand our product offering.

“What’s more, given that Edgetech US and LMI are based in the same location in Ohio, it will allow for a seamless integration.”

Bob Daniels, President of Quanex North American Fenestration said: “LMI has been one of our important vendor partners for a long time, and we’re excited to welcome them to the Quanex family.

“We’re confident their expertise will help us solidify and enhance our portfolio of solutions in the areas where we do business today, and as we seek to diversify, the LMI team will be essential in allowing us to develop innovative new compounds and meet our growth goals.”

The operation, which was acquired from Lauren International, will continue under the name Quanex Custom Mixing.
