Broadview completes acquisition of Formica Group
Broadview Holding B.V. has completed the acquisition of the Formica Group from Fletcher Building. This transaction was announced on 18th December 2018 (www.thekbzine.com).
Broadview welcomes the Formica companies to its family of businesses in the field of material technology which already include Arpa, Trespa and Westag. With combined sales of EUR 1.2 billion and circa 6,000 employees, the expanded group will have a leading global position in surface materials.
