Gloucester manufacturer set to invest £6m-plus in state-of-the-art fabrication site

Diamorph Group acquired Permali in 2021 and has now announced a multi-million-pound investment at its Gloucester facility.

Manchester-based Diamorph provides material solutions under a range of brands for highly demanding environments and is backed by Epiris, an independent private equity firm.

The group is split into three business units - Composite and Polymer Materials, High Temperature Solutions and Passive Fire Protection.

The primary Composite and Polymer Materials (CPM) manufacturing site is in Gloucester; the home of Permali and the future home of Tenmat composites and Railko, material brands in industries such as F1, defence, marine, aerospace and rail.

Back at the time of the acquisition, Diamorph said it hoped to use Permali's 10,500 sq metre Gloucester base as a centre of excellence for developing and growing its enlarged composites offering.

And now it has revealed plans to develop a new £6million-plus fabrication centre as well as offices at the site on Bristol Road.

With increased demand in these sectors, Diamorph added that it also has more than 70 roles available in Gloucester, from manufacturing operatives, lab technicians, quality inspectors, CNC managers to warehouse and logistics supervisors.

Tony Beswick, managing director of the CPM business said: "Diamorph works on some really demanding projects, for example Permali has the prestigious honour of supplying composite parts to all Formula 1 teams on the grid as well as applications on passenger airliners - you've probably sat on a plane with our products on.

"Diamorph invests in its people and with so many exciting opportunities coming up we hope to involve the whole community in its growth and successes."
