CCP Composites, a Total company specialized in composite resins, and Polynt Group, a provider of intermediate polymers and composites, are planning to combine to create an integrated composite resins producer that will rank number one in Europe and number three globally.

Reflecting its commitment to this alliance, Polynt Group has made a firm offer for CCP Composites.

In light of the quality of the offer, it will be presented to the employee representatives concerned, as part of the required information and consultation procedures.

Polynt Group, a leading international provider of chemical solutions, is deploying an ambitious growth strategy that is based on strengthening its positions in Europe and worldwide, through developing activities that are a strategic fit with its own.

“The composite resins business is highly specialized and not integrated with Total’s petrochemicals operations,” commented Patrick Pouyanné, President of Total’s Refining & Chemicals. “In joining a front-ranking global resins player, CCP Composites would be able to consolidate its position, participate to the creation of a global leader, and enjoy new growth opportunities. A combining with Polynt Group, which operates in segments that are a strategic fit with CCP Composites’, would create a top-tier industrial front-runner.”

By combining CCP Composites and Polynt Group, the new organization would be able to capture and capitalize on a number of synergies to cement their leadership:

Their industrial fit would give them a presence across the whole value chain, from upstream production of raw materials to downstream manufacture of resin-fiber composites. Their geographic fit would allow them to cover all leading global markets. Polynt Group and CCP Composites are present in different countries in Europe, with Polynt Group mainly active in Italy and CCP Composites in France.

Polynt Group’s offer for CCP Composites includes clear undertakings to continue operations sustainably and safeguard existing jobs and employee benefits. The proposed transaction is subject to approval by the relevant antitrust authorities.
