HT Troplast is a leading European developer, manufacturer and marketer of PVC window and door profiles.
Headquartered in Germany, the company employs some 3,750 people and operates in 21 countries.
Its sale in August 2007 to Arcapita marked the outcome of a successful restructuring programme completed in a little over two years.
Originally one of four diversified plastics businesses acquired from Ruetgers AG, we worked with the management team to focus the business on its most strategically valuable activity - the production of PVC profiles used in residential and commercial construction. This resulted in double-digit sales growth and positioned the business at the forefront of Europe's most profitable PVC profile markets.
More specifically, the programme saw the disposal of two non-core assets, a significant investment in HT's manufacturing capability and a drive to expand the company's international sales efforts in the high-growth Central and Eastern European markets.
