Dutch plastics processor Rompa Group has acquired plastic and metal components maker ITB Group, to reinforce its market share in the international plastics market.
Based in Boxtel, southern Netherlands, ITB was founded and run by Hans van Dooremalen who, due to health concerns, has decided to take a step back from his activities.
With a production footprint in the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Mexico, the company develops and supplies precision plastic and metal parts for industries including electric tools, automotive, medical and pharmaceutical machinery.
“ITB Group possesses the technology, knowledge and experience to produce products with an extreme degree of precision to ensure they meet the strictest quality standards,” said Rompa CEO and co-owner Patrick Gerard in a 7 May statement.
“They have the ability to design and develop high-quality processes, stamps and moulds. This results in the rapid and effective production of injection-moulded plastic and metal products, stamped parts and extensive mechanised assembly,” he added.
Founded in 1881 originally as a leather tanner in Tilburg, the Netherlands, Rompa manufactures plastic and electronic products.
The company’s shares are owned by Gerard and Jesse Plasman, director Far East.
Rompa uses injection moulding and thermoforming processes to manufacture products for various market segments, such as automotive, packaging materials, consumer products and industrial applications.
The company supplies products to major brands, including Phillips, Bosch, Britax Römer, Procter & Gamble, Johnson Controls, Avery Dennison, Siemens and Rentokil Initial.
Rompa has production facilities in China, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany and the US.
“The takeover of ITB Group enables us to seize new opportunities to further expand our market position with new technologies and more expertise for the manufacture of technically complex products,” said Gerard.
