Specialty chemicals and advanced materials company Arkema (Colombes, France) announced that its subsidiary, adhesives firm Bostik (Milwaukee) has acquired CMP Specialty Products—a floor preparation business owned by Bensalem, Pennsylvania-based CGM.

CMP, which is headquartered outside Philadelphia, reported $15 million in sales in 2016.


Specialty chemicals and advanced materials company Arkema announced that its subsidiary, adhesives firm Bostik, acquired CMP Specialty Products—a floor preparation business owned by Bensalem, Pennsylvania-based CGM.

Bostik said the acquisition was made to delve further into the U.S. construction market by offering a range of flooring products and to accelerate its growth in specialty adhesives.

“CMP teams will bring their recognized expertise within the commercial flooring sector with high quality and highly performing products. We look forward to leveraging this expertise to better serve our customers within the U.S. market."
