EDV UK, a Sheffield-based precision rotary tooling manufacturer, has become the latest business to be acquired by Arlington, strengthening its offer of providing endmills, drills, reamers and special custom tooling to the aerospace industry and beyond.
The move for EDV UK follows Arlington’s acquisition in June of NWP, a Birkenhead business with 30 years’ experience in supplying fasteners, cutting tools and aircraft components to companies such as Airbus, Hawker Beechcraft and BAE Systems.
John Brazier, CEO of Arlington Aerospace, stated: “We are very pleased to welcome EDV UK. Their strong experience in the specialist cutting tooling sector will greatly benefit the strategic direction of our aerospace division, a global pioneer in supply chain integration.”
Bob Young, general manager of EDV UK, continued: “Our 50 years’ industry knowledge will be perfectly complemented by the additional skills and experience of Arlington Aerospace, enhancing our offering to add an extra competitive edge. We are very excited about the future opportunities which will arise.”
With the EDV business now under the company’s wing, Arlington’s ability to provide specialist tools only adds further value to its integration offer.
