Ennis-Flint, the world’s largest manufacturer and supplier of road marking materials, announced today the planned acquisition of the materials manufacturing business of VERNISOL.
The acquisition includes the Italian manufacturing facilities in Spinadesco and Turin, both of which provide high-quality and reliable products. The strong, experienced management team, workforce and sales team will remain in place to provide uninterrupted service to our valued customers. Managing director Bruno Trentini will remain in his current management position, as well as remain a significant shareholder.
“My team and I are very excited to join the Ennis-Flint group,” said Mr. Trentini.
“Our facilities in Italy and our technical knowledge in traffic paints and MMA/cold plastic adds to Ennis-Flint’s broad product range, which includes bitumen, thermoplastic, anti-skid, preformed thermoplastic and expoxy. With this, we are confident that we will be able to offer the best in the road safety industry. We are going to use this great opportunity to integrate ourselves with Ennis-Flint in the European, Middle Eastern and African markets by providing customers with the products and brands that they want and the quality and service that they deserve.”
As the two companies are integrated over the next several months, our number one focus will remain on our customers.
The transaction is expected to close in the next 30 days.
