Pulcra Chemicals has made the first acquisition in its history. The chemical company Pulcra Chemical, Geretsried/Germany, is taking over the supplier of specialty chemicals Devan Chemicals NV, Ronse/Belgium, owned by the private equity fund Pentahold NV, Sint-Martens-Latem/Belgium.
Devan is known from its antimicrobial range Bi-Ome, its large sustainable track record with, among others, probiotics solutions, a wide range of recently introduced bio-based textile finishes and a long standing in thermoregulation and flame retardants. Devan has offices in the UK, Portugal, the USA and a team in Shanghai/China.
The acquisition of Devan will support Pulcra’s vision of being a leading international supplier for sustainable chemistry.
