DGL acquires New Zealand manufacturer RLA Polymers


Specialist chemicals manufacturer DGL Group Limited has announced the acquisition of RLA Polymers NZ Limited, a leading manufacturer and distributor of products in the building and construction industries.

Trading as Bondlast NZ Limited, RLA Polymers Primary primarily manufactures synthetic latex compounds, flooring adhesives, waterproofing sealants, ceramic tile adhesives and self-levelling cements for the building and construction industry.

The company has a strong domestic and international customer base, including major construction companies and retail blue chips.
