The newly merged business based in Wythenshawe
Merseyside-based Coral Products plc, which designs, manufactures and supplies injection moulded plastic products, has merged the business and operations of two of its wholly owned subsidiaries, Tatra Plastics Limited and Rotalac Plastics Limited.
The newly merged entity will be known as Tatra Rotalac Limited and will combine the strong respective marker positions of both individual companies in the fields of injection moulding and plastic extrusion, as well as bolster the companies’ customer service offerings.
Since being acquired by Coral in 2014 and 2016 respectively, Tatra and Rotalac have been operated as standalone businesses until they were fully established in the Coral Group.
Tatra has relocated its operation from Halifax to Rotalac’s Wythenshawe premises. Rotalac has a 40,000 square feet office and production facility with 25 production lines providing a 24-hour operation. Synergies are expected to arise from the merger in the form of saved premises and overhead costs as well as providing for the aforementioned merger benefits.
Founded in 1963, Tatra Plastics is an approved supplier to BT and Network Rail and manufactures a range of products made specifically for the telecoms and rail industries together with rigid and flexible plastic extrusions for custom and standard profiles.
One of its key products is the ‘Click and Fix’ range, a plank based solution for a variety of end uses including horse stables, kennels and sheds.
Rotalac’s products are used in a wide variety of applications in industries ranging from aerospace and medical to automotive and manufacturing.
