“This is an excellent outcome for the business, staff, customers, suppliers and the communities in which Claymark operates.
"Securing a going concern sale in the current environment is testament to the drive and commitment of Claymark’s management team and all its employees."
Purchaser Paul Pedersen says, “We are excited that the acquisition of the Claymark business has come to fruition.
“We acknowledge the input of the team that have worked tirelessly under difficult circumstances to continue to maintain quality products to markets around the globe."
