Export company Diamorph has signed a conditional agreement to acquire Permali Limited, a Gloucester, UK-based manufacturer of composites for defense.

Diamorph completed its acquisition of Birmingham, UK-based Tufnol Composites Ltd, which makes aerospace composites in March 2021.

‘These acquisitions allow Diamorph to broaden its composites competency and enter new markets,’ said Diamorph chief executive, Gordon MacLeman. ‘Permali has a long history of developing bespoke composite solutions for critical defense applications since the 1930s, whilst Tufnol has been manufacturing high performance composites since the 1920s and has a highly regarded brand and reputation for delivering market leading wear performance in the aerospace sector.’
