  • The acquisition of IPM represents an important strategic step which will both secure and enhance Umeco Composites’ leading position in one of its highest growth markets.
  • “The global installed wind power capacity is expected to more than triple between now and 2012, from 94.1 GW to 335 GW (source: WWEA)”.
    “The acquisition of IPM is a key element of our strategy to maintain and develop our high global market share in composite curing materials for the wind energy market”.
  • “Using IPM’s vacuum bagging film, we have captured a significant share of this market. However, wind energy currently accounts for just 6% of Group sales and the scope for growth is very exciting. Not only does IPM secure a strategic important source of material supply, but it also provides us with the technology platform to establish the necessary local presence in other key markets.
  • “The further growth of our Composites activities, which is focused on the aerospace, wind energy and automotive markets, is a core element of our Group strategy. Following our investment of some £33m in the acquisitions of JD Lincoln and Primco over the past two years, today’s development represents a further important step forward.”
