Dartex Coatings has been acquired by Trelleborg Coated Systems, a business area of Trelleborg AB.
The Long Eaton-based transfer coater will continue to operate from its existing premises on Acton Close and will retain its existing management team.
David Ripley, Managing Director of Dartex said: “This is a very exciting time in the development of the company, and as a management team we see this as a tremendous opportunity to further consolidate the company’s position as the world’s leading specialist producer of technical medical coated fabrics.”
“Dartex Coatings has been based in Long Eaton since the 1970’s, where it began as the coatings division of Courtaulds Textiles and we remain committed to maintaining this legacy of manufacturing and investment here.”
Trelleborg Coated Systems is based in Milan, Italy with the Trelleborg Group head office located in Sweden.
