Spectris, a supplier of instrumentation and controls, has acquired the Millbrook Group. Headquartered in Surrey, UK, Spectris employs around 8,700 people in more than 30 countries.
Both Spectris and Millbrook are set to benefit from the investment, which will enable Spectris to provide differentiated solutions that combine hardware, software and services. Millbrook will become part of the test and measurement business segment of Spectris and complements a number of its other businesses. The integration will enable Millbrook to continue with its plans for growth, accelerating capital investment and international expansion.
Eoghan O’Lionaird, Spectris business group director, said, “Millbrook represents our largest purchase to date of a pure testing services business. It is closely related to our existing instrumentation businesses and, as such, the acquisition is an important step forward in the realization of the group’s strategy to provide our customers with differentiated solutions that incorporate a combination of hardware, software and services.”
Visit Millbrook Group at Booth 3012 at Automotive Testing Expo China 2016, which takes place September 27-29.
