At various points this organic growth has been augmented by acquisitions starting with DaRo UV Systems Ltd in 2007 and most recently with the acquisition of Light Years Ahead Ltd and creation of DaRo Fibre Products Ltd and Stage Products ltd.

 

In all of the steps we have never lost sight of our core skills of engineering design and in-house manufacture and all of our businesses to date utilise the knowledge and skills of the core business – DaRo Products Ltd
