Polypipe acquires Silavent
Published:  16 February, 2010

DONCASTER: Polypipe has acquired the goodwill and assets of the Silavent group. This move will strengthen Polypipe's position in the UK ventilation systems market in which it already has a significant presence in the form of Polypipe Ventilation and its Domus product range.

The Silavent brand is a good match for Polypipe's portfolio as it has a well-deserved reputation for providing excellent quality products and high levels of technical support in the developing UK ventilation market.

"This acquisition provides us with an opportunity to build upon the brand and ensures that the well-established customer base will continue to have access to Silavent products and expertise," commented David Hall, chief executive officer Polypipe.

"The changing sustainability agenda and consequent changes to the Building Regulations is putting greater emphasis on the need to provide cost-effective, sustainable ventilation solutions and transforming the way developers and specifiers achieve these requirements. Polypipe intends to be at the centre of this trend, providing differentiated solutions both in the private and social housing sectors to achieve these emerging environmental standards."
