The Tricel Group has announced that from September 1, 2017, the distribution of composite materials will come under the new name of Tricel Composites. The existing distribution companies of Glasplies Ltd and Fiberglass Supplies (Leeds) Ltd will merge and be known as Tricel Composites (GB) Ltd and Tricel (Newry) Ltd will be known as Tricel Composites (NI) Ltd.
These companies form part of the highly successful Tricel Group which operates under the following four divisions; Environmental, Construction, Water, and Distribution which includes both composites and lubricants. The group has a long history of delivering innovative solutions for today’s ever-evolving industries.
As one of the UK and Irelands leading distributors of composite materials, the company supplies an extensive portfolio of product offerings to a variety of industries. Head of Distribution Division for Tricel, Mr Robbie Larkin, commented: “Changing the name to Tricel Composites is a part of our long-term growth strategy. We will continue to expand our share of the market and aim to become the leading distributor in both the UK and Ireland. Composite materials will be distributed out of three locations with depots based in Leeds, Southport and Newry.
"The group has over 60 years of successful operations in the composite industry, both in manufacturing and distribution. This experience has helped us source high-quality raw materials from the world’s leading brands which we use to deliver exceptional technical expertise and solutions to our customers.”
