Argotec Restructures Business

Greenfield, Mass.-based Argotec Inc., a producer of custom-engineered extruded thermoplastic
polyurethane (TPU) films and sheets, has restructured its business in order to improve its services
to the textile lamination, performance apparel and footwear industries.

“Instead of focusing just on products we can make and market, we are concentrating in better
matching our film extrusion capabilities, technical expertise and resources with the applications
of our customers — strength to strength,” said Bruce Wilby, president and CEO, Argotec.

The company has reorganized its business into six products groups: ArgoFlex™: textile
laminating films for bonding fabric layers together, air and water containment, and waterproofing
applications; OmniFlex™: waterproof-breathable films offering antibacterial odor-control technology
for performance apparel and footwear applications; ArgoBond™: optical interlayer films and edge
seal tapes for laminated glass applications; ArgoGuard™: durable, weatherable high-gloss aliphatic
protective films for paint and metal; ArgoGraph™: printable, conformable, high-gloss overlaminate
films for graphics applications; and ArgoThane™: TPU films and sheets for applications that require
a high degree of customization but are not necessarily associated with markets served by the other
five groups.
