Winn & Coales Buys US Firm Viscotaq

Read Time: 1 min

Winn & Coales International, a UK-based manufacturer of corrosion prevention and sealing products, has acquired the Viscotaq business, which includes Amcorr Products and Services, a manufacturer of viscoelastic protective coatings.

Amcorr Products & Services Inc, based in San Antonio, are the formulators and manufacturers of viscoelastic protective coating technology, Viscotaq. The patented Viscotaq product range is used for corrosion prevention and sealing applications on vital infrastructure across a broad range of sectors.



Amcorr was originally established in June 2000 in San Antonio, and thereafter rapidly became a North American leader of viscoelastic coatings and sealants in the corrosion industry.

Edwin Welles, president of Amcorr and co-inventor of the Viscotaq technology, commented: “We feel honoured being part of the Winn & Coales family now. A similar business culture, with a privately-owned structure and a technology driven mentality was a natural fit for us. The acquisition will give Amcorr the opportunity to grow rapidly, both nationally and internationally and above all, guarantee dedicated service and supply to existing and future clients across the globe.”

For more than 90 years, the Winn & Coales International Group of companies has been creating bespoke and off-the-shelf solutions that provide protection against corrosion and chemical attack to buried and exposed pipes, valves, fittings, steelwork, marine structures, tanks and concrete bunded areas.
