In other news, BÜFA Composite Systems, Germany-based supplier of tailor-made unsaturated polyester resins and formulations, will acquire UK-based AOC (UK) Ltd, a supplier of composite products with over 25 years experience in providing distribution and mixing service. AOC Aliancys will remain, as former owner, the supplier of the resins portfolio. In future, the UK company will trade as BÜFA Composites UK.

Resins from AOC Aliancys, who have supplied BÜFA Composite Systems for more than 50 years, are transformed into specialities by the Rastede-based chemical company. The complete package also includes a long-standing sales partnership in numerous European markets.

After 3rd March, the AOC Aliancys portfolio will be offered through BÜFA Composites UK.
