Witten, Germany, July 5, 2021

ARDEX Group, the leading global solution and service provider of innovative building systems, announced today that it has further strengthened its market position in New Zealand by acquiring the business of Drymix NZ. The company has been placed into receivership in mid-2020. The acquisition by ARDEX secures the future of the company and its employees.

Drymix operates two production facilities, one on the North Island and one on the South Island. And it manufactures and supplies a range of bagged concrete and mortar products that are designed for use in DIY and projects where small amounts of concrete are needed. Going forward, the products will be marketed under the brand Dunlop Drymix. The Dunlop brand is already a prominent brand in the market, which will now evolve to embrace Drymix concretes and cements.

“We’re delighted to welcome Drymix and its employees to the ARDEX family. With the acquisition of Drymix, we become the market leader for pre-mixed bagged concretes in New Zealand”, says Mark Eslamlooy, CEO of ARDEX Group. “The additional production sites bring us closer to the customer, therefore helping us to reduce both delivery times and our carbon footprint.”
