Westwood pipelines to rebrand as Egeplast UK

Following the acquisition of UK based Westwood Pipelines by egeplast International GmbH the business will be rebranding as egeplast UK from the end of March this year. The rebrand will reinforce Westwood Pipelines’ position as a UK manufacturer and supplier of polyethylene pipe systems to the utilities sector and enable the company to target new market sectors.

“The transition to egeplast UK will support our ambitious growth plans. It will enable us to build upon our outstanding track record in the delivery of exceptional and innovative solutions, and to provide customers with future-proofed pipe systems that safeguard future generations.” says Andy Buchan, general manager at Westwood Pipelines.

“We now have the backing of a premier European manufacturer of polyethene pipe systems which gives us the opportunity to develop additional capacity and, importantly, cement our position as a manufacturing company supporting the UK’s utilities sector.  The acquisition will also enable us to provide enhanced customer service and innovative product offers to target additional market segments such as the gas, power and cable industries.”

The integration of the business into the egeplast group has begun and customers will start to see the appearance of the new branding from the end of March. Westwood Pipelines are keen to stress that the Westwood Pipelines team and ongoing operations at its UK facilities will remain unchanged.
