O’Brien Group acquires Whitaker Technical Plastics Ltd

UK-based private manufacturer O’Brien Group (OBG), which already has significant interests in the plastics industry including UK-based black masterbatch producer Hubron (International), has acquired Whitaker Technical Plastics (WTP), a manufacturer of highly specialised technical compounds.
