Lancaster, Pa.-based Dodge-Regupol has changed its to ECORE International as part of its efforts to broaden its strategic and geographic focus, the company says.
With its new name, the company says
it is working on expanding its leadership as a provider of sustainable
materials and systems for global markets. “We recognize that sustainable
products and processes form the core of what we already do,” said ECORE
President and CEO Arthur Dodge III, whose great, great grandfather founded the
Dodge Cork Company more than 100 years ago.
Formed 18 years ago,
Dodge-Regupol developed as a partnership between the Dodge Cork Company and the
Germany-based Berleburger Schaumstoffwerk GMBH (BSW). The companies mutually
agreed to conclude their joint venture last November as a way to enable both
organizations to pursue distinct business strategies and accelerate growth.
According to Dodge, ECORE will continue to operate in Lancaster, Pa., and
retain ownership of all its brands and operating units. “We’ll continue to make
great products and deliver outstanding service as we have previously,” said
