BEWiSynbra acquire EPS business in UK
BEWiSynbra Group, a leading producer of expandable polystyrene (EPS) in Europe, today announces that the company has entered into an agreement to acquire a minority stake in a UK based newly formed EPS insulation and packaging company.

The name of the business will be Jablite Group and will operate as a stand-alone company, in close collaboration with BEWiSynbra Group.
“BEWiSynbra is very pleased to have this opportunity to invest in Jablite. The fit between our two businesses is a good one with many positive synergies and similarities of outlook.
