MetoKote is a U.S.-based coatings services business with 2015 global sales of approximately $200 million. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter 2016, subject to customary closing conditions. Financial terms were not disclosed.

It operates on-site coatings services within several customer manufacturing locations, as well as at regional service centers, located throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
