COVINGTON, US: Ashland Global Holdings Inc (ASH) said that it has made a binding offer to acquire a composites resin manufacturing facility from Reichhold Holdings International BV, in Etain, France.

The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of June.

The Etain facility, which employs approximately 50 people, manufactures unsaturated polyester resins (UPR) used in a variety of end markets, including transportation and construction. Reichhold said the proposed transaction is an integral part of the program to achieve closing of its previously announced combination with Polynt Group.

"The Etain facility is centrally located and, together with Ashland's existing UPR facilities in Spain and Finland, we will be well positioned to deliver enhanced service to our customers and support future growth opportunities across Europe," added Johnston.
