The complementary product lines, which will provide immediate benefits to Ventec customers, include entry and backing materials for drilling and routing applications, lamination accessories (release films) and copper foil for lamination applications. From 1st October 2021, Ventec officially took ownership of the fully tooled and equipped manufacturing site for back-up and entry material located close to Ventec’s Central European Hub in Kirchheimbolanden, Germany, with specialist employees transferring to Ventec as part of the agreement.

With the acquisition of some of Holders Technology’s specialist material solutions and expertise, we are now even better positioned to implement our long-term growth strategy and to offer a one-stop-shop for our diverse range of customers from industries such as automotive, industrial, medical and mil/aero. This will be of great benefit to customers who rely on Ventec as a trustworthy provider of highly reliable PCB base materials for their demanding applications."
