It is a global manufacturer of small engineered die cast components with customers in the automotive safety sector, among others.

"The completion of this acquisition puts Dynacast in a strong position for growth, backed by significant investor support and ample capital.  [It] will continue to operate as an independent company led by its existing management team," a company statement said.
