Röchling Expands in UK

The Röchling-Group has substantially expanded their leading market position in the CNC machining of high-performance plastics by acquiring Fibracon Twin Ltd., Derbyshire, and Insoll Components Ltd., Hertfordshire. The acquisition increases Röchling UK to three machining companies providing complimentary plastics processing know-how, technologies and market access.

Insoll Components Ltd, located in Hertfordshire, has 25 employees specializing in machining small components. High-performance plastics include PTFE, PEEK and POM. These high precision components are utilized in medical, aerospace and electronics applications.

Both companies will work closely together with Röchling Engineering Plastics (UK) Ltd. which has been established in Gloucester since 1985. The management of Fibracon and Insoll will be taken over by Rüdiger Keinberger, Director of the Röchling Business Unit Machined Components, and Mike Knowles, Managing Director of Röchling Engineering Plastics (UK) Ltd, Gloucester. The previous owners will continue to support the business in an advisory function.

With sales of over EUR 8 million the acquisition of the two companies is a very important part of the strategy of Röchling. Ludger Bartels, COO of the Röchling Group, Mannheim, says: „Fibracon and Insoll will benefit from the close cooperation within the network of 60 locations and more than 8,000 employees which form a large network of plastic processing companies worldwide.”
