I am delighted to announce that Akcros Chemicals has recently signed an agreement to acquire the Lamberti PVC Additives business effective 1st December 2015.
This will bring together two leading additives producers, both with a strong reputation for quality, technical innovation, flexibility and customer focus, extending their combined leadership position in flexible PVC additives and broadening their geographic scope of operation.
Akcros will initially operate the business inherited from Lamberti unchanged, with Production, Sales, Customer Service and Technical Support remaining in Gorla Minore (Italy); Akcros and Lamberti customers will see no change in quality or service as it will be business as usual. There will be a 12 month transitional supply arrangement between Lamberti and Akcros for products manufactured at Gorla, during which there will be a gradual consolidation of production into the Akcros production site in Eccles (UK); however, Akcros will continue with a permanent sales, customer service and technical support team based in Gorla to support customers in Southern Europe, Africa and other regions.
Additional information will be provided to customers and stakeholders alike in the coming weeks regarding the transition of this business from Lamberti to Akcros; customers should continue to place their orders with their usual contacts at both companies and products will continue to be supplied as before.
I would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to all new customers of Akcros and to thank all of them in advance for their cooperation during the transition.
CEO, Akcros Chemicals
