Prisma Colour Ltd, a manufacturer and global supplier of colour and additive concentrates to the rubber, plastics and surface coatings industries, has announced the acquisition of two new businesses, Emsar Polymers and Adam Polymer Ltd.
Prisma Colour says the strategic acquisition brings together three innovative companies with complementary capabilities, product portfolios and operations.
Cheshire-based Emsar Polymers, a supplier of additive masterbatches, will retain its brand and trading name, whilst Bredbury-based Adam Polymer Ltd, a rubber chemical manufacturer and supplier, will take on a new identity as Prisma Additives Ltd, retaining all existing staff.
Mark Wood, Sales Director at Prisma Colour Ltd, explained: “As a company with active sales to over 40 countries we are always looking to add to our already diverse product offering.
“The two recent acquisitions allow us to offer new products through our existing distribution networks, resulting in a stronger Prisma Colour Ltd which is well positioned to excel in an evolving global marketplace.”
Following the completion of the acquisitions, Prisma has recently installed a 2000 tpa mixing and compounding line at its Stalybridge site, which will be dedicated to the manufacture of additive masterbatch.
