Rhino Linings Buys Advanced Coating Solutions

Thursday, November 7, 2013

Rhino Linings Corp., a San Diego maker of protective truck linings, said it acquired Advanced Coating Solutions, a San Diego developer and manufacturer of coatings including epoxies, urethanes, stains, sealers and topcoats, for an undisclosed price.

Before the transaction, Advanced Coating was a supplier to Rhino Linings. The acquisition brings ACS’ products in-house and gives it the resources necessary to focus on new product development, the company said.

Rhino CEO Pierre Gagnon said, “We saw an opportunity to help them reach their potential, and to play a role in bringing new products to market.”

ACS employees will be relocated to the Rhino Linings headquarters where production is based.
