Flintshire firm Revolymer moves HQ to Deeside Industrial Park

A TECHNOLOGY firm which created a revolutionary brand of chewing gum has moved to Deeside.

Innovative scientific research company Revolymer, which developed Rev7, a new gum that can be removed from most surfaces, has moved its headquarters from Mostyn’s Dock Road to Deeside Industrial Park.

The new site, leased by Flintshire County Council, will allow the company to expand its operations and has already created job opportunities.

Revolymer designs and develops formulas to revolutionise consumer products such as cosmetics, detergents, coatings and adhesives.

But its biggest success to date has been its environmentally friendly removable and degradable chewing gum, Rev7, which was launched in the United States earlier this year.

The gum, which uses Revolymer’s special polymer technology and comes in peppermint and spearmint flavours, can be removed from clothes and streets using just soap and water.

Statistics show 50% of all gum finds its way on to the UK’s streets, with councils currently spending more than £150m a year removing it.

The site in Deeside will be a corporate base for the gum’s UK launch, provisionally set for early next year.

Roger Pettman, chief executive of Revolymer, said: “We are very happy with the new site and the ability to renew our commitment to Flintshire.

“Having been based here since 2006, we have seen a period of substantial growth that has transformed us into a global business, and we now have the opportunity to grow the business even further while remaining in North Wales.”
