Millbrook has acquired the CSA Leyland Technical Centre in the UK, which provides testing services to the commercial vehicle, automotive and off-highway markets.
Paul Wilkinson will continue to head up activities at the site, backed by the wider Millbrook management team. Millbrook will make initial investments to enhance testing capability at the facility.
Paul Wilkinson, MD of Leyland, said, “We are very excited to become part of Millbrook as the next chapter for our business. Our Lancashire site is steeped in commercial vehicle testing heritage and we are proud to be joining a company that understands our business and the needs of our customers so well.”
Alex Burns, Millbrook president, commented, “This acquisition perfectly complements our existing proving ground and testing capabilities. We have a strong track record of growing similar test service businesses and are committed to delivering the highest levels of customer service and technical expertise.
“I am delighted that Paul Wilkinson will continue to lead the team at the site and I look forward to working with him and his colleagues to take the business forward.”
