Since our inception in 1990 as Cook Composites and Polymers, we have continually strengthened our manufacturing and research capacities, product depth, and distribution networks through a series of business arrangements, major capital investments, and acquisitions. We look forward to continued growth and expansion in the coming years.
Beginning in 1990, Cook Composites and Polymers shared a joint venture with TCI, which operates within the chemicals division of Total, a multibillion dollar oil, gas, refining, chemical, mineral, mining and trading company based in Paris, France. In 1999, Total acquired PetroFina and, in 2000, Elf Aquitaine.
On July 1st, 2011, the Polymers division of Cook Composites & Polymers was sold to Arkema in order to enable both to focus more on their individual specialties. On the same date, all the composites activities of the Total group became structured into one entity: CCP Composites. Our company integrated this structure and changed its name to CCP Composites US.
On December 1st 2014 CCP Composites was acquired by Polynt Group, and changed its name to Polynt Composites USA.
The world's largest and leading producer of polyester gel coats, Polynt Composites formed the largest composites distributor network in North America in 1999. The network combined the following distributors:
Composites Materials, Inc. (CMI)
Santa Fe Springs, California
R.P. Associates, LLC
Bristol, Rhode Island
East Coast Fibre Glass
Cape Sable Island, Nova Scotia
CIE and Arkem Compagnie, Inc
United Fiberglass Distributors, Inc.
A subsequent joint venture with GLS created Composites One, the world's largest composites and cast polymer distributor.
