UK businesses acquired

On February 22nd 2019, Harke Group, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany acquired Chemlink Specialities Ltd and Addi-Tec Ltd, both formerly businesses within the Chemlink Group in Manchester, UK.

This acquisition will provide the Harke Group with a strong UK base and will expand the portfolio of products and services offered to Chemlink Specialities Ltd and Addi-Tec Ltd customers. 

Thorsten Harke, President of the Harke Group said: “The acquisition of Chemlink Specialities and Addi-Tec is another important step in our strategy to offer to our customers and principals an excellent, innovative commercial, logistical and technical service throughout Europe, Russia and Turkey. Customers and principals alike in various industries will profit from the increased knowhow and capabilities of a wider team, sharing technical knowledge. This is supported by additional lab resources which we plan to implement at the Chemlink Specialities head office in Manchester, UK.” 

Jack Minister, director of both Chemlink Specialities Ltd and Addi-Tec Ltd added: “I am excited with the future of Chemlink Specialities and Addi-Tec as part of the Harke family. We operate in similar markets and product ranges and share a common business culture. Along with Chemlink Specialities and Addi-Tec’s technical capabilities, with our laboratory in Manchester UK, the Chemlink Specialities/Addi-Tec family will not be changing, the people you have always interacted with will remain and this was key to the success of this acquisition. With Harke and Chemlink Specialities/Addi-Tec working together, future possibilities are bright.”
