    New Haven, CT, March 8, 2019 VR Mergers & Acquisitions (“VR”), a Connecticut business brokerage firm serving business owners in the Northeast, is pleased to announce the closing of the sale of TPR2’s Fireshell®,  Heat Shedder®, FireSafe® and Structure SaverTM intumescent coatings to Innovative Chemical Products Group (“ICP Group”). ICP Group is a portfolio company of Audax Private Equity and is headquartered in Andover, MA. TPR2 is located in Essex, CT.    

    TPR2 develops and manufactures specialized thermal barrier, fire retardant and fire resistant technologies used for a variety of applications and end users.  The company’s line of intumescent coatings were brought to market in 2007 to coat spray foam insulation used primarily on commercial construction projects. Fireshell®, Heat Shedder®, FireSafe® and Structure SaverTM are distributed throughout North American and select overseas markets through leading insulation product dealers.    

    Peter Gummo, managing partner of TPR2, found in ICP Group a company that was a perfect fit for the Fireshell®product line.  ICP Group is a leading specialty chemical manufacturer in North America and provider of coatings, adhesives and sealants globally.  The acquisition of these product lines and technologies provides the ICP Group new opportunities to strengthen its total offering to customers and channel partners while further positioning ICP Group as the premier coatings innovator.

    Jeff Swiggett, President of VR Mergers & Acquisitions, commented that “We were very pleased to assist Peter and his partners in this transaction and quite honored to have been trusted with managing the sale of their Fireshell®, Heat Shedder®, FireSafe® and Structure SaverTM coatings.  They developed a great product line and we wanted to make sure we secured the right buyer which we did with ICP Group.”
