Wilsonart to Acquire KML

Bethpage, N.Y.-based Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces has announced plans to acquire Tacoma, Wash.-based decorative surfaces and panel manufacturer KML. The acquisition will support the growth of Wilsonart’s coordinated surfaces program and expand its capacity to manufacture Thermally Fused Laminate Panels.

“Our Coordinated Surfaces offering, a suite of best-matched surfacing options in high pressure laminate (HPL), TFL panels, and edgeband featuring more than 230 Wilsonart designs and textures, has garnered tremendous support from both specifiers and fabricators,” says Ron Ubertini, vice president of product management for WilsonArt. “TFL is a key part of that offering and expanding our manufacturing footprint enables us to improve service and meet growing demand.”

“KML has a good name and reputation for taking care of customers with high-quality products and on-time shipments,” adds KML General Manager Willie Wanker. “Now part of the Wilsonart organization, KML has strong support for our brand. Customers can count on continued service from the KML team during the transition.”
