Petrochemicals giant, Mexichem, has acquired Derbyshire-based PVC compounds manufacturer, Vinyl Compounds Holdings (VCHL), for an undisclosed sum.
VCHL will be integrated into Mexichemâs Compounds Business Unit, a supplier of PVC compound solutions serving the global market and part of the Companyâs Vinyl Business Group, which reported sales of $2 billion (approx. £1.6bn) for the twelve months ending September 30, 2016.
Mexichem says the addition of Vinyl Compounds, which achieves annual revenues of US$40 million (approx. £32m), will expand its ability to meet global PVC compound demand, as well as enabling further vertical integration of its Compounds Business Unit operations through VCHLâs stabiliser technologies and recycled PVC capabilities.
VCHLâs key raw materials are PVC resin and plasticisers, which Mexichem says should bring additional synergies to its vinyl operations.
