Hyde Group, Wallcovering Products

More growth for Hyde Group
Hyde Group, parent company of Hyde Tools Inc., has purchased Roman Decorating Products Inc., formerly known as Roman Adhesives. The acquisition makes Hyde owner of a leading line of wallcovering adhesives, primers and related sundries, including the top two brands in wallcovering sundries, Professional and Golden Harvest.

Thanks to the Roman deal and the early-2004 purchase of A. Richard, a Canadian paint and drywall tool supplier, the privately held Hyde Group now boasts $130 million in annual sales and a dominant position throughout North America.

Roman continues to operate as a separate entity. It recently signed an agreement with Fiberlock Technologies to market and distribute that company’s ShockWave and AfterShock antimicrobial chemicals and coatings and Recon specialty cleaning and restoration products.
