Colbond is an excellent business which will double Low & Bonar’s presence in the attractive technical textiles market. In addition, by adding complementary technologies and products, we believe that this acquisition further enhances the Group’s long-term growth potential”.

Low & Bonar is now firmly established as a major competitor in the technical textiles sector, and we look forward to building on that position”
