CROMAR Building Products Ltd has announced its acquisition of Acrypol Products Ltd.
This is the first acquisition for the East Yorkshire Company that turns over £27 million. The company says that acquiring the ‘original’ waterproofing repair brand will mean a big boost for Cromar.
Acrypol was founded in 1986 with a mission to provide quality roof repair and waterproofing products for the trade. The business started trading with just one product – Acrypol+. As its flagship product it is not only recognised as the quality benchmark, it is sold into more than 2,000 stockists throughout the UK. Acrypol’s portfolio of products has expanded over the years to include complementary products such as Tech Seal and Metal-Kote in order to fulfil growing customer demand.
Cromar Building Products was founded in 1997 and is independently owned. The firm offers builder and roofing merchants a wide range of flat and pitched roofing products.
Mike Marshall, Managing Director of Cromar commented, “Acrypol is such a renowned name within our industry, it will make an excellent addition to the existing Cromar family of products. We are really looking forward to developing the Acrypol brand name further and consulting with the Acrypol specialists to develop even more great roofing products for the trade.”
Wayne Morgan, Sales Director of Acrypol said, “Acrypol has over 30 years of recognised excellence and we cannot think of a better company to take this brand onto the next level. With the combined knowledge and customer base of the two businesses the future is definitely looking bright.”
All orders will continue to go through the Acrypol office in Warrington, and for more information on Acrypol, customers are advised to contact their usual Acrypol or Cromar sales representative.
