Arborite, a manufacturer of high pressure laminate, has acquired Lamin-Art, Inc., a major brand of decorative surfaces in North America.

Lamin-Art was a privately-held business based in Schaumburg, Illinois, and will now operate as part of the Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces organization. 

"The Lamin-Art business model nests beautifully into our brand strategy," said Salvatore Rivera, president of Arborite. "Lamin-Art has earned a distinctive brand cachet in the commercial interior design markets. Their unique offering allows us to provide even more design and product choice to customers."

"Lamin-Art is proud of our exceptional employees and loyal customers we've earned over more than 50 years, said Donald Krog, former owner and president of Lamin-Art. "Together with Arborite's resources and expertise, the business will continue to evolve and grow."

Kevin Geijer, a 16 year Wilsonart veteran, has been appointed general manager of Lamin-Art. The transaction is expected to close in May 2016.

Lamin-Art’s designs can be found in high-profile retail stores, hotels, restaurants, showrooms, trade show exhibits and more.

Arborite, a business unit of Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces, offers a range of premium textures and over 200 colors and patterns. www.arborite.com
