Backsheet producer Tomark-Worthen (TW) has acquired the products, technology, and trademarks of backsheet and solar insulation firm Madico.
TW, a joint venture between Tomark Industries and US-based adhesives, films and sheets specialist Worthen Industries, was formed in 2012 to produce co-extruded (HP-CoEx) backsheets.
The new acquisition includes all of Madico’s certifications and intellectual property for its PV backsheet and solar panel insulation products. TW will be adding all of the former Madico PV products, such as the Protekt, to its own HP-CoEx backsheet products and speciality PV encapsulation materials.
Production started being migrated from Woburn, Massachusetts, to the TW facility in Nashua, New Hampshire, on 1 January 2018.
David Santoleri, president of TW, said: “This acquisition will enhance our Tomark-Worthen product offerings while building on Madico’s significant brand name recognition and allowing customers to continue to purchase the Madico products.”
Mark Fehlmann, VP of technology and engineering, said “We are happy to see the Madico line of PV products go to the very capable team at Tomark-Worthen. It’s comforting knowing the products we created will continue to be used in the industry.”
Prior to forming TW, Tomark Industries represented Madico for almost 20 years and helped to develop many of the Madico products during that time.
Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit Americas has arrived in Fort Lauderdale to provide a platform for this next step in renewable energy industry. The energy storage market and development brings as many challenges as it does advancements, with a myriad of technologies, capacities, functions, and lifespans. With most projects still in development and technologies with sparse track records, knowledge in this fledgling industry is invaluable. Investors, utilities, consumers, and all renewable energy participants have to not only understand the market, but be able comfortable enough to make the right investment in energy storage to not be left behind the curve. Our event is the platform for companies to bridge the gap between “future energy storage plans” and “installed energy storage”. Join us to discuss the latest news on standardization, comparing battery technologies, financing projects in different markets, resilient microgrids, and storage use for emergency response and aid, among many others. We will not only to educate and familiarize attendees on the capabilities and benefits of energy storage, but make the connections, and introductions, to accelerate energy storage development in North, Central, and South America.
