Our team: Alex Kaufmann, Mark Harnett


Fladgate LLP has advised German company Stockmeier Urethanes GmbH & Co. KG on its purchase of Greenfield Polymers Limited, the West Yorkshire based producer of polyurethane, epoxy and silicone thermoset resin systems.

The purchaser, who is part of the international Stockmeier Group, acquired the entire share capital of Greenfield Polymers for an undisclosed sum. The sellers were advised by Ramsdens Solicitors LLP of Huddersfield.

The Fladgate team was led by corporate partner Alex Kaufmann with property partner Mark Harnett advising on the environmental aspects of the transaction.
