Case studies

The following case studies demonstrate how the Purico Group has implemented its core principles in the manufacturing and service sectors.

Nicro Bolta S A, Mexico

Purico’s chrome plating facility opened in 2005, primarily to supply parts to Volkswagen’s plant in Mexico.

The German car giant approached one of our companies, Bolta Werke GmbH, to set up a new factory producing plated parts in Puebla.

Bolta already produced VW badges and decals in Germany, and had the required technical knowledge and skills. It was therefore able to pass on its expertise and enter into a successful joint venture with a local manufacturer. Within 16 months Nicro Bolta was fully operational, making plastic parts to meet Volkswagen’s rigorous standards.

Devon Valley Limited/Union Papertech Limited

These two prominent paper companies contribute significantly to maintaining the Purico Group’s standing as one of the world’s largest manufacturers of tea bag and coffee filtration paper.

Devon Valley and Union Papertech were originally owned by the Crompton Group which produced tea bags. When the group went into administration in 2006, Purico took the opportunity to acquire part of the business and turn it around.

A change in ownership and investment in new technology have enabled these businesses to improve processes and flourish. Today both firms are key suppliers of speciality papers to food and industrial markets across the world.

Dovestone Park

Land owned by the Purico Group in the Peak District National Park was the perfect place for us to develop a leisure facility that would appeal to lovers of the great outdoors.

The site, near the village of Greenfield, now houses a number of luxurious timber lodges and pods in the heart of the countryside. The glorious location is close to major cities and towns.

Dovestone Park’s two-bedroomed log cabins are available for sale or rent. Each has central heating, double glazing and a fully equipped kitchen, as well as all the latest gadgetry, including an iPad docking station, a large TV screen and multiple stereo speakers.

The development is very much in keeping with Purico’s aim of offering the best products and services throughout the world.
