Pulcra has acquired Devan from Pentahold
Pulcra Chemicals, with headquarters in Geretsried, Germany, has just announced its first acquisition in its history by acquiring fellow-industry player, Devan.
Devan is known for its antimicrobial range BI-OME®, its large sustainable track record with probiotics solutions, a wide range of recently introduced bio-based textile finishes and a long standing in thermoregulation and flame retardants. The company is headquartered in Belgium and has offices in the United Kingdom, Portugal, the United States and a team in Shanghai, China. Devan was founded in 1977 and has been owned by Pentahold, a Belgian private equity fund, since 2013.
“We are thrilled to complete this transaction with mutual trust to grow the business as a solution specialist for our customers across a broad range of textile markets. The acquisition of Devan will support our vision of being the leading international benchmark for sustainable chemistry,” said Ümit Yaldiz, Chief Executive Officer of Pulcra Chemicals.
