As of 30th November 2017, Vinyl GB Ltd, trading as EcoVyn, has acquired the assets of Naylor Polymers, a division of Naylor Drainage Ltd.
The plant and machinery of Naylor Polymers will be transferred to the site in Wrexham, North Wales and will be added to the existing production capacity.
The equipment includes pulverising, compounding, blending and granulating facilities.
The company had already extended it’s warehousing to 60,000 sq. ft. earlier this year to cope with the installation of additional production capacity, in turn bought to cope with increased demand. EcoVyn had installed a state of the art twin deck Maag pulveriser in June, capable of producing consistent, fine particle pulver.
Simon Burgess, Managing Director at EcoVyn stated that the move continues the company’s ongoing, long term strategy of both organic and acquisitive growth in the PVC industry. This puts the company as one of the industry leaders in pulverising and PVC compounding for reprocessed, hybrid and virgin compounds.
Our most important investment has been in people and I am proud to head a strong management team, Burgess says, and have now taken on additional technical and quality control staff to fulfil customer expectations. Despite challenging times and a degree of uncertainty over Brexit we have come through with the help of our stakeholders, including the Welsh Government who have been very supportive.
This acquisition puts us in a strong position to capitalise on the burgeoning market for PVC materials. We have been surprised at the level of consistent demand both in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. Our sales have been growing year on year helped by the exchange rate but also by our innovative approach to customer demand. We are supplying our materials as far afield as South Korea and India.
