“Now the fun begins!” Dr. Heribert Decher (CEO, Heytex) Ted Anderson (CEO, BondCote). Both businesses look forward to joining and bringing more products and services to our global customers.
Worldwide coverage with high-quality products – a strategy that both companies pursue together. The combined company now has a total of four productions sites on three continents, i.e. Bramsche and Neugersdorf in Germany, Pulaski, Virginia USA, and Zhangjiagang in China. Current and future Heytex and BondCote customers will profit from quicker response in products and information from the entire group.
The CEO of the Heytex Group, Dr. Heribert Decher, put it this way: “We pursue a long-term strategy and set standards with our innovative products. With BondCote as a new member of the Heytex family we have made the next, very important step.”
Ted Anderson, CEO of BondCote adds: “Together with our customers we will develop new products made of our innovative textiles. To do so, we value direct customer contact and our proximity to the markets. We look forward to offering our customers these products and being part of the Heytex Group and to sharing our experience and the know-how we will gain with Heytex. This will increase the worldwide presence of the new group in the field of functionalized technical textiles“.
Current BondCote management and employees will be retained by the company and are genuinely excited about the combination of the businesses. BondCote will be the center of operations for North America including sales, technical, and logistics for all of Heytex Group’s products.
