Leicester-based Nylacast — a designer and volume producer of high-precision polymer assemblies and components —
has acquired local firm Viva Nylons, which is a renowned manufacturer of cast nylon semi-finished products (it makes a wide range of plates, rods and tubes for distributors and manufacturers around the world).
The acquisition forms part of Nylacast’s commitment to offering value-adding engineered solutions to manufacturers in the construction, transport, pharmaceuticals, defence, marine and energy sectors.
Mussa Mahomed, Nylacast Group CEO (www.nylacast.com
), said: “This acquisition brings together two successful engineering-led companies at the forefront of polymer technology.
“It is also intuitive to our increasing demand for capacity and expansion.”
Nylacast currently has three manufacturing plants in Leicester (along with its headquarters), as well as plants in China, South Africa and the USA.
Employing 530 people, the group services a world-wide market with its custom-engineered, low-weight and low-friction components, which are used in safety-critical applications to maximise production and minimise down-time.
