Duraco Specialty Tapes, a leading converter of pressure-sensitive tapes and specialty materials, has acquired 3 Sigma, a custom solution provider of pressure-sensitive products and specialty coatings from Brixey & Meyer Capital. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Troy, OH, 3 Sigma has a wide range of coating technologies and powerful in-house adhesive formulation capabilities. 3 Sigma has an established track record of providing unique, high-quality custom solutions to customers in high-growth HBA, flexible packaging, food and beverage, and medical end markets.

The addition of 3 Sigma will further accelerate our growth trajectory and places us at the forefront of cutting-edge development to meet the evolving needs of our end markets.”
