BRUSSELS – Resins suppliers Allnex and Nuplex Industries have now officially been brought together to form one company. The group, present on four continents and serving customers in over 100 countries, becomes the leading industrial coating resins company globally.
The company will operate under the name of Allnex and has launched a new logo that is a symbolic representation of the combined strengths of Nuplex and Allnex. It will now draw on the expertise and scope of both Nuplex and Allnex, two companies that both have a history of commitment to innovation and engagement with customers, as well as complementary geographical footprints. They also share similar corporate values and a global outlook.
Miguel Mantas, the new CEO of Allnex, commented, “I am delighted that this business combination has taken place. With our comprehensive, state-of-the-art technology portfolio, our ability to provide clients with the right chemistry for their products is even more extensive than before. I am also looking forward to moving our corporate headquarters to Frankfurt. The decision to choose Frankfurt for the future company’s headquarters was taken with the intention of establishing a new location, symbolizing a fresh start for the company. Frankfurt offers excellent flight, rail and car connections. The city is located in the heart of Europe and Germany, the largest European economy and a key market for the company and for the coatings industry in general.”
Ron Ayles, a Managing Partner at Advent International, an investor that backs Allnex, and head of the firm’s global chemicals practice, said, “The combined company will be a strong global leader in industrial coating resins, with over 30 manufacturing sites and about two dozen research and technology support facilities. This puts us in an excellent position to consolidate current markets and develop new ones.”
