Gremtek joins the IS Group, part of Diploma PLC

Dear Partners,

Firstly, we would like to thank you for your ongoing business and support.  We certainly value the professional relationship that we have, especially the personal rapport we have established with you and with the members of your team.

In order to further develop its business by investing in product and market development , Gremtek has decided to join the IS-Group, part of Diploma PLC.  By joining the IS-Group
/ Diploma organisation, Gremtek will benefit from the investment and financial backing of
a £1.4bn market capitalisation listed company.

Gremtek will continue to operate as an independent business led by Philippe Oudot in the role of President, and will be benefitting from access to an enlarged product range and further technical expertise. In particular, IS-Group will provide Gremtek with an enhanced offering of premium branded electrical harness components and protective solutions aimed to a variety of high performance applications.

For  the  IS-Group,  this  acquisition  will  bring  product  alternatives  to  complement  the current IS-Group portfolio, a wealth of experience in the Automotive / Industrial markets and an increased presence in mainland EU.

We are confident that this move will not only be beneficial to IS Group and Gremtek but more importantly to you, our customers. With increased expertise in new markets, a new product range and additional resources for new product development, we look forward to your ongoing support and the future ahead.

Yours Sincerely,

Philippe Oudot
Gremtek – Managing Director
