SIMONA AMERICA GROUP
The SIMONA AMERICA GROUP is comprised of the following companies: SIMONA AMERICA Industries, SIMONA Boltaron, and SIMONA PMC.

The Group generates annual sales of approximately USD 80 million and employs 250 people.
In acquiring Laminations and Boltaron, SIMONA AMERICA has considerably improved its position within the marketplace and has emerged as a major player in the US market. Additionally, the acquisition of Laminations has given us a larger stake in the global market for fluoropolymers, while the purchase of Boltaron has given us access to the growing market for aircraft interiors. These acquisitions represent a milestone for SIMONA AMERICA and are an integral part of our strategic re-engineering program to accelerate growth beyond the borders of Europe.
SIMONA AMERICA and Laminations operations and customer service are now consolidated at the Laminations site in Archbald, Pennsylvania. Effective July 1, 2014, the two companies have been operating under the name of SIMONA AMERICA Industries while SIMONA Boltaron continues its business operations in Newcomerstown, Ohio.
Effective August 1, 2018, the SIMONA AMERICA GROUP has acquired Premier Material Concepts (PMC), out of Findlay, Ohio, USA.
