The Ordyl product complements our existing dry film portfolio and places us as the number one distributor for dry film in the UK.
“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome John Homer from Elga Europe to the business. John was Elga Europe’s managing director and brings with him a wealth of experience and industry knowledge. John and I have worked together previously and have known each other for nearly 30 years. The acquisition of Elga Europe will allow us to meet all the needs of the current customer base while strengthening our technical team.”
