Gammapar acquires PermaGrain Products, Inc.

PHILADELPHIA, PA – August 2003 – Mirus has assisted PermaGrain Products, Inc. of Newtown Square, PA, with the sale of several divisions: the Company’s Ultratect® Flooring Products division and GenuWood Line of hardwood flooring products, as well as the Company’s PermaGrain Parquet flooring operations and their Timeless Series® and FineWood® product lines. The divisions were acquired in two transactions by Prism Enterprises, LLC, of Forest, VA, an affiliate of Gammapar, which is also a manufacturer of acrylic-impregnated hardwood flooring.

PermaGrain has been the industry leader in engineered hardwood plank and parquet flooring for over 20 years and was a pioneer along with Gammapar in the development of acrylic-impregnated flooring products. Permagrain’s patented UltraTec system combines a proprietary moisture-negating TecCore backing with a hardwood veneer to enable hardwood-flooring installation in high moisture environments, accelerating the construction process by eliminating delays in sub-floor curing. GenuWood combines a thin hardwood veneer with a tough vinyl surface to provide a real hardwood visual with the durability and easy maintenance of vinyl, while the Company’s Timeless Series products are impregnated with acrylic resin, which strengthens the wood and prevents wear.
