Hyperlast ready for expansion

Hyperlast has been acquired by British Vita for £34.6m. The acquisition comes just three years after Hyperlast’s management buyout from Kemira Oy. Brian Parks, manager director of Hyperlast, said: `Continued sales growth in Europe and the Pacific Rim has brought Hyperlast to the point where we and our customers will benefit from belonging to British Vita. We are excited by the opportunities opened to us as a result of joining this global polymer technology group.
