TRAFFORD PARK, Manchester – March 2nd, 2021 – Vebro Polymers Group, an international specialist in the sale and marketing of resin-based flooring systems, pump and proprietary cementitious levelling screeds alongside car park deck waterproofing and wearing solutions, today announced it has completed its acquisition of PR Epoxy Systems Ltd, a leading UK based formulator and manufacturer of epoxy resin-based flooring, grouts, adhesives and intermediates, for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition of PR Epoxy Systems into the Vebro Polymers Group is a significant milestone in the ambitious company’s growth plans, introducing both in-house manufacturing capabilities and warehousing capacity – in addition to strengthening the service and technical support that can be provided to customers through the integration of seasoned sales, customer service and research and development teams.
Vebro Polymers and PR Epoxy customers across Europe and beyond can also expect to benefit from a broader product portfolio on top of increased agility, product accessibility and reduced lead times.
Headquartered on Manchester’s bustling industrial estate, Trafford Park, PR Epoxy Systems has a long history of formulating and manufacturing high-quality epoxy-resin based products for an international rollcall of clients across the globe dating back to 1988.
Today, PR Epoxy Systems is proud to be one of only a few privately-owned, independent home-grown epoxy resin manufacturers remaining in the UK. The company takes products to market under its own brand as well as offering a private-label service for other manufacturers and specialist applicators.
“PR Epoxy Systems is an extraordinary, R&D focussed organisation with an amazing team and an impressive portfolio of epoxy products,” says CEO & Co-Founder of Vebro Polymers, Craig Brookes.
“Together, Vebro and PR Epoxy represent a formidable force, combining competencies that will allow both companies to better serve and react to market demands as well as developing a robust product line of proprietary formulations that will better support the many specialised industries that our customers are selling into”.
Pradeep Rawal, Managing Director of PR Epoxy Systems Ltd, adds, “We are delighted to now be a part of the Vebro Polymers Group and are very much looking forward to collaborating with our new colleagues.
“Having invested over 30 years building the PR Epoxy Systems business, with the help of a loyal and dedicated team, it was very important to me personally to find the right acquisition partner, who shared our company vision and values and that would be able to sustain the PR Epoxy legacy long after my retirement.
“The Vebro Polymers team has a wealth of experience and success managing market-leading construction businesses and brands across the world, which will undoubtedly prove invaluable to maximising new opportunities for PR Epoxy customers.
The two companies will continue to trade under their existing names, and Rawal will remain in an interim consulting role in order to facilitate a smooth transition for customers and employees alike as well as support the broader initiatives within the Vebro Polymers Group.
Speaking of the acquisition, Mark Verinder, CFO and Co-Founder of Vebro Polymers says, “Vebro has very quickly demonstrated a proven track record of success and market growth built on superior product quality, industry experience and providing custom-driven solutions.
“Both Vebro and PR Epoxy share similar values and complementary strengths, which is why we believe PR Epoxy to be a great fit for the next chapter of our business.
“Our teams are very excited to join forces and work on new initiatives that will expand product options and support services even further.”
