Nasmyth Group, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of precision engineering products and services, announced today that it has acquired the trade and certain assets of Arden Precision Limited, (“Arden”) based in Solihull. Nasmyth Group is this year celebrating the 10th anniversary of its incorporation and is pleased to be acquiring Arden, established in 1980, to complement its already comprehensive engineering facilities in the UK and overseas.
In addition to precision machining including CNC turning, CNC Milling, 4 and 5 axis milling and 3D machining, Arden, also provides CMM inspection facilities suited to a range of components destined for aerospace applications. The expertise and skills of Arden and its employees, combined with the company’s state-of-the-art facilities and its strong customer base, make it an ideal fit with the 14 specialist businesses that already make up Nasmyth Group.
Nasmyth Arden, as the business will now be called will continue to operate from its modern premises in Solihull and will be constituted as a division of Bulwell Precision Engineers Ltd, one of Nasmyth Group’s wholly-owned subsidiaries that itself specialises in all aspects of the production of components and mechanical assemblies for aerospace and similar high quality and precision requirements.
Peter Smith, Chairman and Chief Executive of Nasmyth Group, commented: “With its reputation for quality, a reputation earned with such high profile clients as Rolls-Royce sub-contractors Aero Engine Controls and Meggitt, Arden Precision represents a significant asset for Nasmyth Group. For the Arden business and its employees, becoming part of a precision engineering group offering a truly optimised, international, single source supply chain will create exciting new opportunities for investment, development and future growth.”
