Q.E.P. acquires Capitol USA adhesives, drops Roberts seaming tape business
The acquisition of Dalton, Ga.-based Capitol USA will allow Q.E.P. to "augment the current capacity to manufacture critically needed adhesives for Q.E.P.'s expanding business," the company said, and noted that Capitol USA's 104,000 square-foot warehouse will provide a strategic location to support Q.E.P.'s continued growth.
Though Q.E.P. transferred the assets of Roberts carpet seaming tape to Halex, the company will still sell carpet seaming tape to its Home Center customers, Q.E.P. said.
