The Litchfield Group plant at Nether Heage in Derbyshire

Litchfield Group Falls To Synseal

November 18, 2014

Synseal acquires trade and operating assets of the Litchfield Group’s UK window & trade extrusion and door businesses, trading as LB Plastics Ltd and Manse Masterdor Ltd

Bought for an undisclosed sum, the purchase comes as some surprise as more recent rumours had been centred around Eurocell and Synseal.

Based at Nether Heage in Derbyshire, LB Plastics was at the forefront with the use of PVC-U windows for the British market back in the 1970s and the company has been respected for its high performance thermoplastics for the UK building industry ever since.

Operating production facilities registered to ISO.14001, LB Plastics predominantly supplies lead-free extruded PVC-U products to approved fabricators and installers, along with custom designed extrusions to other building component suppliers. Product sales are backed by extensive technical support and in-house design and testing services, including a dedicated team focused on delivery of house building projects.

In addition to Sheerframe PVC-U windows, doors and curtain walling, the Litchfield Group’s UK window and trade extrusion and door product portfolio includes a broad range of options that include Hometrim cellular cladding, roofline and trims, Sheerline fencing and decking products, Thermlock thermally enhanced window and door reinforcements and a range of Masterdor residential door sets and Suredor GRP composite doors.

“LB Plastics boasts a proud tradition having served the UK fenestration industry for more than 35 years, offering established and proven products that have stood the test of time,” explained David Leng, Chief Executive, Synseal’s Chief Executive. “This acquisition is a good fit to expand the scope of our business, as LB Plastics primarily supplies commercial market sectors with a full range of specification products which complement our range for residential and home improvement market applications.”

Mr Leng insisted that Synseal will continue to invest in the Sheerframe and Masterdor brands as it had done when it bought K2 Conservatories in 2012. “We will fully support the current development of LB Plastics and Manse Masterdor product offerings and service logistics to strengthen these businesses for future success,” he concluded.
