Nylacast headquarters in Leicester, UK

Nylacast, one of the UK’s leading polymer solutions design and engineering companies, today announced it has completed the acquisition of nylon products manufacturer Viva Nylons.

The Leicester, UK-headquartered company said the move was part of its growth strategy and will aid in its plans to offer a wider range of low-weight, low-friction polymer components to customers in construction, transport, pharmaceuticals, defence, marine and energy.

No fee for the acquisition was disclosed by Nylacast, which now includes Viva Nylons as a wholly-owned subsidiary. The company said Viva would retain its brand for the foreseeable future.

Steve Aldred of Viva Nylons said: “It’s incredibly exciting for the Viva Nylons team to now be part of the much bigger Nylacast family. For the employees of both companies it’s a fantastic opportunity to share experiences and develop further together.”
