We are pleased to share the news that we have recently completed our acquisition of the leading global additive company Addmaster.
The UK-based firm has been our supplier of antimicrobial additives for over 12 years, and we are both now aiming to build on the strong partnership we have developed over this time.
With Addmaster primarily active in hard surfaces and Polygiene active in textiles and soft surfaces, the two companies complement each other well and there are significant synergies within the companies’ customer bases, as Addmaster’s customers demand soft surfaces and Polygiene’s customers demand hard surfaces.
Paul Morris, founder of Addmaster, and Sandrine Garnier, its managing director, will continue to be active within Addmaster following the acquisition.
Ulrika Björk, CEO of Polygiene, comments: “The transaction is a milestone in Polygiene’s history and from a strategic perspective very logical given the great synergies that exist between the companies. Through the acquisition, we can strengthen our position in the market with a much broader offering, which will accelerate our already strong growth.”
Paul Morris adds: “I am very excited to be part of bringing two leading companies together to create a global powerhouse in the antimicrobial market, utilizing our joint strengths of branding, technology and organization.”
