Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates, the aggregate manufacturers, has acquired the Resin Surfacing operations in Stalbridge, Dorset from Geveko Markings.
This acquisition is said to make Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates the only manufacturer of resin and aggregate in the UK.
The acquisition includes all manufacturing plant, product and equipment and employees will be retained by the company.
Sam Buckley, Managing Director, Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates, said: “This acquisition is the perfect next step in our commitment to offer only the highest quality resin and aggregate to the UK resin bound market. We are delighted to supply the superb products previously supplied by Geveko to customers who will continue to receive BBA approved products as normal.”
Martin Poulter, CEO and founder of Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates, said: “As the manufacturer of DALTEX, the UK’s no 1 brand in resin bound, we are delighted to announce this significant strategic acquisition which is a huge development in our plans for future growth in the UK and international resin bound market.”
André Thomsen, CEO, Geveko Markings Group, said: “After a thorough strategic review, we concluded that the decorative resin surfacing market is not a strategic area for our business. The transition of our devoted team and good customers to Derbyshire Aggregates embodies a promising chapter for all involved.”
The new site will add to Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates’ seven current sites across the UK including its Head Office and main production facility in Derbyshire, Daltex Central Hub in Ashbourne, DALTEX Trade Centres in Brighouse and Bridgend as well as a slate plant in Bangor, North Wales. These are supported by two large dock facilities in Mersey Wharf and Goole.
