SWM is a leading global provider of engineered solutions and advanced materials. From our origins as paper-making experts during the Renaissance to our cutting-edge technologies that solve today’s modern business challenges, SWM has consistently demonstrated a forward-looking approach to helping our customers succeed. Our history of performance is thanks in large part to our fundamental manufacturing expertise of roll goods and our deep understanding of the industries we serve.
In recent years, as we focused on expanding our reach beyond fiber-based materials, SWM established and grew its Advanced Materials & Structures (AMS) platform to include expertise and capabilities in resin-based technologies and materials. As part of this effort, SWM acquired and integrated several global leaders specializing in market-leading netting and high-performance TPU films, including Argotec (2015), Conwed Plastics (2017) and DelStar Technologies (2013). As part of the Conwed acquisition, SWM also acquired its subsidiary Filtrexx International, a global leader in the research and development of sustainable, compost-based solutions for erosion control and stormwater management. Our most recent acquisition is Scapa Group Plc, a UK-based innovation, design and manufacturing solutions provider for healthcare and industrial markets.
