Investment Date: December 2010
Exit Date/Status: February 2016

Flow Polymers is a leading manufacturer of proprietary and custom chemical dispersions, process aids and homogenizing agents for the tire, automotive, industrial products, wire and cable, and plastics markets. GGC acquired the company in partnership with the existing management team – which owned significant equity in the company – to execute on a robust growth plan. Under management’s leadership, the company nearly doubled earnings organically over five years through significant international expansion and the introduction of new products and raw material sources.

Flow Polymers was sold to Polymer Solutions Group in February 2016.
