Helifix Inc is pleased to announce that it is now part of CRH plc, a substantial building materials group that services the breadth of construction needs from new-build to repair.
The Helifix Group with operations in USA, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, strengthens CRH’s position in these key territories, while for Helifix this change of ownership will allow local entrepreneurship to benefit from large company resources.
Brian Barnes, Vice President of Sales, said,
“This is fantastic news which brings immediate operating benefits and secures the long-term development of the business. We are now an integral part of an international construction group that is committed to supporting our growth plans and will ensure we reach our full potential.”
“I’m delighted that this process is now complete and that the business can move forward with renewed vigour and heightened optimism.”
The existing Helifix management remains in place and, despite talk of exciting future plans, company founder and UK Managing Director Bob Paterson confirms the current focus is unchanged.
“Our customers can be assured that it is ‘business as usual’ at our operations worldwide. The immediate priority for the Helifix team is to continue to provide the high quality products, technical support and excellent customer service that the market has come to expect from us”.
CRH has a turnover of circa €18 billion and employs over 75,000 people at 3,600 locations worldwide. The Helifix Group will join the existing Engineered Accessories division of CRH that comprises a number of other market-leading manufacturers.
As expected from a major international group, being part of CRH will bring enhanced focus and continual investment in health and safety, innovation and sustainability.
New Helifix company and technical literature will be available shortly.
