Berck acquire Fourjay and enters new market with Ministry of Defence

West Bromwich-based manufacturer, Berck, is set to work alongside the Ministry of Defence following their acquisition of Fourjay.

Berck, who manufactures metal pressings and metal sub-assemblies for automotive, electronic and medical industries will now be supplying fuses for the Eurofighter and F-16.

Managing director of Berck, Darren Yates, said: “Fourjay were specialists in deep drawing which is something that we have been unable to do until now. They supply into the Ministry of Defence and they are a large worldwide supplier of fuses. Some of Fourjay’s fuses and connectors are used in the Eurofighter and the F-16’s which is fantastic news enabling us to move forwards.”

The family-owned business utilises cutting-edge technology, and its production facilities are equipped with ‘state of the art’ plant, including versatile roll feed and multislide presses to ensure efficient production and consistent quality in all of its precision components.

Ongoing investment in manufacturing processes has provided Berck with cutting edge enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for optimising production control and collecting real-time shop-floor data.

Berck have also acquired the staff from Fourjay and re-assured their future as a part of Berck’s growing operation. Yates explained: “It was excellent news for their staff and us. We can already add to our skilled workforce with people that are coming over with a variety of new skills. They will have an opportunity to train our people and vice versa. We have already presented Berck to them and they all seem to be very excited.”
