As part of the agreement, Andy Brewer, former CEO of US film manufacturer Transcendia (Franklin Park, Illinois;, is to become the executive chairman of Spartech. Nautic Partners continues to hold a minority stake. The parties involved did not provide any financial details.

In 2012, US-based PolyOne – now Avient (Avon Lake, Ohio; – acquired Spartech for the equivalent of EUR 300m (see of 29.10.2012). After carving out the compounds division, PolyOne sold the company to compatriot Arsenal Capital Partners (New York, New York; in the summer of 2017 for EUR 100m (see of 24.07.2017). They in turn sold Spartech to Nautic Partners in the autumn of 2019.

The new owner said it sees good acquisition prospects for the film specialist, thanks to the strong US economy for consumer goods and medical technology. The last acquisition of The Jordan Company, under CEO John Inks, was US-based Tufpak (Ossipee, New Hampshire;, a manufacturer of films for medical applications.
