DSM said that Bolger & O’Hearn was selected for several reasons, including B&O’s new product development capabilities and highly personalised service approach. Bolger & O’Hearn is a recognised leader in the textiles industry for new product innovation and customer service.

“Their technical support, with highly trained chemists and hands-on technical representatives, will be an integral part of all our combined successes,” said Amy Geiger, North America Sales Director for DSM Coating Resins. “We look forward to working closely with them and believe [our customers] will benefit from their expertise.”

The collaboration with DSM is just the latest development in a banner year for Bolger & O’Hearn, which includes being listed on the global ZDHC list of environmentally preferable chemistries and launching Stormproof/Breathable OmniBloq, an advanced DWR (durable water repellent) technology.

“We are very excited about our new distribution and technology development relationship with DSM,” said Shaun O’Hearn, President of Bolger & O’Hearn. “Their high-quality polymer coatings and adhesives are an excellent complement to our specialty textile chemical line-up.”

“Close collaboration with DSM’s polymer R&D team will result in innovative products for our partners in the textile and related industries. This relationship should provide unique value propositions throughout the supply chain for our combined customer bases.”

Founded in 1969, from its traditional beginnings in the textiles industry, Bolger & O’Hearn has expanded into paper coatings, nonwovens and other non-textile manufactured products, all of which find applications in a wide range of industries. Today its product line – totalling over 2,500 products – is sold and distributed globally. Committed to a zero-carbon future, B&O currently produces its products using renewable energy. The solar voltaic array on its facilities allow it to displace more than 100,000 pounds of carbon each year.
