DelStar acquire Smith & Nephew Extruded Films

It is with great enthusiasm that we jointly announce the signing of a definitive agreement by which DelStar Technologies (a division of SWM International) will acquire certain assets from Smith & Nephew’s Advanced Wound Management division.

As part of the transaction the Smith & Nephew Extruded Films Gilberdyke, UK facility will become part of DelStar’s operations. The transaction is expected to close once customary closing conditions are met, which is anticipated in advance of year-end. 

The new combined entity brings together two premier filtration and medical plastic extrusion organizations and unifies them in order to best serve you - our customer.  This acquisition will present the opportunity to produce new and innovative solutions to healthcare and filtration problems utilizing many of the combined technologies both as composites and as stand-alone products. 

We are excited about this acquisition which is a strategically strong fit, and we are positive the synergies and market expertise of both our companies will create a compelling value proposition for you and your customers.  We commit to you that you will continue to receive the high level of customer service and quality you have expected from both organizations.  

Until further notice, all of our contact information, including addresses, phone and contact information will remain the same.  Please feel free to contact our Sales or Customer Service teams if you should have any further questions about this merger.
