Trelleborg’s Acquisition of Minnesota Rubber & Plastics Finalized

MINNEAPOLIS – October 27, 2022

Over the last 77 years, Quadion, LLC., better known as Minnesota Rubber & Plastics (“MRP”), has grown to be an innovative global company. Our success has been built on the trust of customers in a partnership of working together to solve difficult elastomer and thermoplastic sealing and component challenges.

In August of this year, it was announced that Minnesota Rubber and Plastics signed an agreement to sell the organization to Trelleborg Group (“Trelleborg Sealing Solutions”). Effective today the sale is complete.

Becoming part of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, a global leader in polymer solutions, unlocks new benefits for MRP customers. We will continue to fulfill our commitments to excellence and innovation for our customers, while expanding our global reach.

“This is a step change for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. The business area will be as strong in North America as it’s already established position in Europe,” says Peter Nilsson, President and CEO of Trelleborg Group.

We look forward to continuing our customer partnerships and being a trusted industry leader.
