Argotec has a carefully assembled management team possessing over 200 years of experience in urethane film extrusion.
That's why our customers receive exceptionally effective solutions to their most difficult specialty film challenges.
Argotec was founded in 1988 by Richard Barnes and Steven Wolkenbreit at its current location in Greenfield, Massachusetts, site of the company's first manufacturing facility.
Since its inception, Argotec has differentiated itself by taking on seemingly impossible application challenges and not only providing effective solutions, but building strong customer partnerships in the process. The result has been new and innovative urethane film formulations, new applications, and entry into new and exciting markets.
After construction of its initial plant in 1988, the first commercial order was shipped in 1989. Argotec's second plant was was built in 1999. Major additions were made to both facilities in 2005 and 2007. The company's on-going investment in the industry is seen in its most aggressive expansion in 2008, which redoubled again Argotec's square footage and capacity. Each addition has been reinforced with the most modern extrusion and quality systems.
As new films and applications have advanced from development to commercialization, Argotec has added the high-volume capacity and in-line inspection systems to support very large programs with world-class quality and competitive pricing.
Argotec continues to invest in building a team of experts to drive the philosophy of providing our customers with not merely a product, but business-savvy solutions to their unique challenges. We have been successful in attracting the most experienced technical staff in the industry with hundreds of years combined experience in urethane film extrusion.
Through all of this growth, Argotec has remained true to the original vision of the founders:
"Listen to the customer, stay focused on problem solving, and keep technical service as the number one priority."
