    The Lindal Group has acquired 100% of the shares of Altachem NV

    The Lindal Group announced today that it has acquired 100% of the shares of Altachem NV.

    With this acquisition, the Lindal Group realises further its strategy to become the leading manufacturer of valves and actuators for the aerosol market, while offering a broad and global product range.

    Thanks to a successful business model and excellent technical capabilities, Altachem has become over the time the reference manufacturer of valves and related accessories for polyurethane foam applications.

    Altachem will become Lindal's Center of Excellence for polyurethane valves and related developments. Being part of the Lindal Group organisation, Altachem will continue to operate, as it has done so far, from its plant in Deinze, and with the same high level of attention and technical support to the customers.

    Jean-Marie Poppe has been appointed Managing Director of Altachem. In this role, Jean-Marie will also coordinate all the Sales activities of the Lindal Group for polyurethane foam applications.

    Also, starting from now, both R&D teams will work together and offer greater capabilities to support our customers with innovative packaging solutions.

    With Altachem joining the Lindal Group, our customers will benefit from:
    - A broader range of Products.
    - A flexible and secured supply chain thanks to the availability of the polyurethane related products in several of our production sites.
    - New development opportunities by bringing together two strong R&D teams.
