Tinby A/S acquires LM Skumplast A/S

09. January 2017

LM Skumplast A/S in Tjæreborg has a new owner, Tinby A/S of north Funen - a part of the stock-market listed company SP Group. The acquisition will provide clients with even more insulation-solution options within the construction and food industries for instance, using polyurethane (PUR) with which both companies have extensive experience.

Our service, facilities and staff remain unchanged. However, the ownership of LM Skumplast A/S located on Industrivej in Tjæreborg, changed at year's end. As of 6/1/2017, the new owners of the company will be Tinby A/S in Søndersø on Funen - a plastics company, and a part of the listed SP Group A/S.

“We are extremely pleased about the acquisition of this Jutland company. By joining forces with LM Skumplast A/S, we will strengthen our ability to further develop and manufacture insulation materials” said Torben Nielsen, Managing Director of Tinby A/S. Tinby A/S is a significant player in the field of polyurethane manufacturing for four primary elements: cabinets, flex, greentech, and design.

LM Skumplast A/S has expanded several times since its founding in 1978, and manufactures polyurethane-based panels and profiles with strong insulating properties for customers within the refrigeration and transportation sectors, as well as the construction industry.

“The new ownership, cooperation and our common goals make both of our companies even more competitive as innovative manufacturers of polyurethane products,“ adds Torben Nieslen who goes on to explain:

“The plastic material polyurethane, which LM Skumplast A/S and Tinby A/S both have a great deal of experience in, is the best insulation material on the market. It can reduce the thickness of insulation material in, the wall of a building or in a refrigerated trailer by up to 30-40% compared with more recognized stone and glass wool materials - while delivering precisely the same quality of insulation. At the same time, the material is known for, among other things, its low absorption of moisture and its rigidity, it is easy to install and is easy to finish off by sawing, cutting or grinding. This, makes it a prime material for the insulation of almost anything from houses and refrigerated trailers to refrigerated storage rooms, and used as technical insulation within many industries.”

Tinby A/S will now be able to further develop its already numerous insulation products, which include insulation jackets for valves and district heating installations, window profiles, heat exchangers, containers, etc. “We manufacture for both our own product portfolio and OEM clients, and also act as a subcontractor,“ explains Torben Nielsen.

After the change of ownership, LM Skumplast A/S´ activities will continue at the same pace - from the Tjæreborg facility, and Director Kim Hansen will continue in his role as director of the firm. He is looking forward to the company and its employees becoming stronger players within the plastics industry.

Managing Director of the SP Group A/S, Frank Gad, says that the acquisition of LM Skumplast A/S will accelerate SP Group´s growth. “We are acquiring a company that functions well and is strongly positioned because we are convinced that together we can make use of our experience in development, manufacturing and selling PUR products to strengthen our competitiveness and create an even stronger position for us internationally,“ says Managing Director Frank Gad.

In connection with the change of ownership, LM Skumplast A/S will be changing its name to Tinby Skumplast A/S.
