Euroresins operates in nine countries in Europe, including the UK, Italy and France. The company reports sales of approximately 90 million euros, and has approximately 70 employees.

According to a statement from Netherlands-based Royal DSM, the sale of Euroresins “is in line with the strategic actions DSM is pursuing for composite resins”.
