Its first production facility outside Germany was opened in 1979 in Gordonsville, Virginia.
The company was sold in 2001 to a partnership by Cinven and JP Morgan following a restructuring in the supervisory board of Klöckner Werke AG. In 2007, it was purchased by the Blackstone Group. In June 2012, Klöckner Pentaplast was acquired by a group of investors under the leadership of Strategic Value Partners (SVP).
