The Matthews and North Wales facilities were the EEF (electronics and engineered film) division of InteliCoat. On August 6, 2007, the EEF division separated from InteliCoat to form Exopack Advanced Coatings, and became a division of Exopack LLC, which is also an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners.
In 2011, the company chose Guangzhou, China to open its distribution and converting facility, which enhance service and support for its distributors and manufacturing customers in the thriving region.
In 2013 the company introduced new brand: digital imaging (previously Intelicoat) to its product portfolio.
