Investment Finance

At Informex, SORIS met a Philadelphia based private equity company, looking for investment opportunities. They claim to differ from usual PE companies; have a much longer time horizon; have particular empathy with, and understanding of, the chemical industry; work with current owners instead of replacing them; and would welcome opportunities in UK.

If this could be of interest please contact SORIS for an introduction

British Pavilion at Chemspec Europe

UKTI offers space for 13 companies on its pavilion at Chemspec Europe in Berlin on 9-10 June 2010. There is a possibility that 9 of those companies can qualify for exhibitor grants – which substantially reduce the cost of exhibiting.

Interested companies should contact Tricia Francis at UKTI North West office as soon as possible. A floor-plan of the exhibition suggests that the UKTI pavilion is very well located – easy to find and likely to catch a lot of “passing traffic” as visitors move between different halls.
