Global polymer group, REHAU, has strengthened its relationship with long-standing customer, DecorEdge after purchasing the Manchester-based edgebanding firm’s asset base and welcomes two key team members into the business.

This arrangement came into effect from 31st January and is the next step in REHAU’s growth strategy within its interior solutions division.

Customers of DecorEdge will gain immediate access to REHAU’s extensive range of products, including its industry-leading edgebanding, surface and storage solutions. They will also be able to form a direct relationship with the experts who design and manufacture the original components.

DecorEdge, a specialist distributer of edgeband based in Manchester, has been a loyal customer of REHAU for over 14 years and a key distributer of REHAU edgeband across the north of England and further afield.

Colin Hunt, Managing Director at DecorEdge will work closely with REHAU Head of Sales Scott Williams to maintain continuity between REHAU and the newly acquired customer base.

"This is a great fit for both parties, customers can look forward to receiving the same product, by the same staff, offering the same great service, but now backed up with a wider product portfolio and specialist support," says REHAU Head of ISS Sales, Scott Williams

“DecorEdge is a trusted distributor with extensive knowledge of the UK market. The new relationship enables REHAU to vertically integrate its edgeband distribution which will benefit REHAU, DecorEdge and our combined customer base.”
