Accu-Casttm, a manufacturer of alginate mold making materials located in Bend, Oregon announces that it has been acquired by Smooth-On, Inc., based near Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Accu-Casttm was founded as Accu-Denttm in 1969 by Dr. John Frush, a dentist and entrepreneur who introduced unique alginate formulations for dental applications. Daughter Lucinda Frush Baker and Son-in-Law Chris Baker joined Accu-Denttm in 1989 and focused their efforts not only on marketing to the dental industry, but also saw opportunity in developing alginate formulations for creating television and film special effects.
Following years of exceptional growth, the Accu-Denttm business was sold. Recognizing the potential for unique alginate formulations for a variety of applications other than dental, the Baker’s built a new manufacturing facility in Bend, Oregon in 2005 and focused on R&D to expand the Accu-Casttm product line. Today, Accu-Casttm formulations are known around the world for consistent performance.
Lucinda Baker states that, “partnering with Smooth-On makes sense on different levels. Their infrastructure, manufacturing, quality control and customer service capabilities will ensure the continued growth of the Accu-Casttm product line for years to come. We are thrilled and very enthusiastic for our continued mutual success".
