Bedford Technology LLC announces acquisition of plastics division assets of Virginia Harbor Services

By November 9, 2011 No Comments

Bedford Technology LLC is pleased to announce the closing of its acquisition of the assets of the plastics division of Virginia Harbor Services, Inc.  Among the assets acquired by Bedford Technology are the production equipment, tooling, trademarks and patents associated with the SeaPile, SeaTimber, SeaCamel and EcoBoard product lines previously manufactured by Virginia Harbor Services (also known as Seaward).  Bedford Technology will continue to manufacture these products at the facility in Winchester, Virginia that had previously been leased by VHS.

SeaPile and SeaTimber are advanced composite plastic piles and timbers with superior properties to wood, steel and concrete for many marine structures.  These products significantly outperform other materials in the areas of rot, corrosion, decay, environmental impact, and susceptibility to marine borers.  SeaPile and SeaTimber cost far less during the lifetime of a structure because they need little if any maintenance.  This makes the material the ideal choice for fendering, bridge pier protection, guidewalls and other marine applications.

Bedford Technology’s President and CEO, Brian Larsen, commented as follows, “We have long admired the strong market position, outstanding reputation, and excellent performance of the SeaPile and SeaTimber products and believe they will complement our BarForce product for marine applications.  This acquisition aligns well with our overall strategic focus of investing and expanding in markets with recycled HDPE products and processes worldwide.”  Jeff Breitzman, Chief Operating Office of Bedford Technology, added, “These assets add a very unique and patented technology that will be leveraged into unique product and market opportunities previously out of reach for us.  Combining this process technology with our well established manufacturing capabilities positions us as an industry leader in serving our customers’ innovative needs.”

Since 1990, BedfordTechnology has been recognized as one of the most experienced and reliable manufacturers in recycled plastic products. Based in Worthington, Minnesota, Bedford Technology offers a full line of recycled plastic products to markets such as marine, park and recreation, agriculture, site amenities, and many others..
