Sun Chemical and the DIC Corporation Acquire Gwent Electronic Materials Ltd

The shareholdings of Gwent Electronic Materials Ltd, Applied Enzyme Technology Ltd, Gwent Sensors, Gwent Biotechnology Systems Ltd, and LRH Ltd have been acquired by Sun Chemical and its parent company, the DIC Corporation.

Our group considers this an exciting opportunity to offer our wider range of products to customers globally. The synergistic effect of working with a company which is already heavily involved in the electronic materials market will be mutually beneficial. Gwent will expand rapidly as now being able to access Sun Chemical and DIC's wide range of basic raw materials, dedicated facilities, and larger scale manufacturing plants. In addition, development of new products will be much faster than utilising only our own resources which is what we are currently doing.

The existing directors will continue to work for Gwent so that all advantages of being part of a larger group can be realised. The facility in South Wales will continue to operate as it currently does. To this effect, we have a long-term lease upon the development and manufacturing site that we currently operate from.

We emphasise there will be no changes in the point of contact for any of our customers and distributors; all will continue as at present. Product will continue to be supplied from our Pontypool factory under our quality systems for medical products of ISO 13485 and for automotive products of ISO 16949.
