Glossop, UK – Prisma Colour, a UK-based supplier of colouring solutions to the rubber and silicone industries, has completed its acquisition of two businesses, Emsar Polymers and Adam Polymer.
Prisma said 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, while Bredbury-based Adam Polymer, a rubber chemical manufacturer and supplier, will take on a new identity as Prisma Additives, retaining all existing staff.
“As a company with active sales to over 40 countries we are always looking to add to our already diverse product offering,” said Prisma Colour sales director Mark Wood.
“The two recent acquisitions allow us to offer new products through our existing distribution networks, resulting in a stronger Prisma Colour which is well positioned to excel in an evolving global marketplace.”
Following the completion of the acquisitions, Prisma has installed a 2000 tonnes per annum mixing and compounding line at its Stalybridge site, which will be dedicated to the manufacture of additive masterbatch.
