Rhino Linings Corp., a provider of protective coatings, has acquired the assets of Expo Industries Inc., a San Diego-based manufacturer of Expo Stucco interior and exterior stucco products, sealers, bonders, patch products and plaster mixes.
This acquisition expands Rhino Linings line of building products which already include waterproofing products, spray polyurethane foam insulation, decorative concrete and epoxy flooring systems.
“Expo Stucco is a well-respected and recognized leader in the building industry, “said Pierre Gagnon, president and CEO of Rhino Linings. “Since it blended and packaged our Concrete Solutions bag mixes, we are now able to bring product packaging in-house and expand our line of building products. We are also excited about the opportunity to expand name recognition and sales for the Expo Stucco brand.”
Since it was founded 84 years ago, Expo Stucco has become a leader in the building industry with well-known products such as GX2 Premium Exterior Stucco and MX3 Scratch and Brown plaster mix. These products have been used in everything from large public structures to commercial developments and homes. In 2013, the company was voted Vendor of the Year by the California Building Materials Dealers Association.
All Expo Stucco products are now available from Rhino Linings. Twelve employees joined Rhino Linings and will continue manufacturing and packaging operations at the Expo Stucco facilities, located less than a mile from the Rhino Linings headquarters.
Additional terms of the acquisition were not released.
