With effect from 31 January 2018, Tilcon-Hüttenes-Albertus Limited, a subsidiary of Hüttenes-Albertus UK Ltd. (HA UK for short), has been fully merged into HA UK.
As part of the transaction, HA UK, which hitherto owned 25% of the company, has ac-quired all of the company's shares. Tilcon-Hüttenes-Albertus was founded in 1980 as a joint venture with Hinckleys Limited.
For the global HA Group, the full acquisition and merger means a strategic step in bun-dling its forces in the Resin Coated Sand (RCS) business in Europe. The transaction also underlines HA’s commitment to the UK market.
"Our goal is to meet the demand of our customers for high quality RCS products for the shell molding process sustainably and reliably from a single source," says Amine Serghini, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing at Hüttenes-Albertus. “UK is an important market for us with highly esteemed customers whom we want to service op-timally.” In this sense, the HA company guarantees continuity: the well-known and trusted contact persons will be maintained and continue to deliver the same high quality and reliability in the future.
With the merger, the HA group, as one of the world’s leading foundry resins and con-sumables manufacturer, takes a further step to strengthen its market position and to follow its mission: to be the leading innovator and preferred supplier to the global found-ry industry.
