Almond buys Multex engineering business

Almond Engineering Limited is delighted to announce that we have acquired the Trade and Assets of Multex Limited’s Engineering business.

Established in 1991, Multex is a high quality engineering company which designs and manufactures test equipment for electronic circuit boards. With a strong reputation, and a wide customer base across the UK and internationally, Multex has many synergies with Almond. There are a number of customers that already purchase from both Almond Engineering and Multex, now they can enjoy the same high quality and customer service from one integrated business. We are looking forward to offering new products and services to customers of both companies.

A further benefit for customers is the additional Multex CNC and manual machining facilities that complement those at Almond, giving both businesses increased capacity and flexibility. The Multex factory increases our available factory floor space and those of you who have visited Almond recently will know how welcome that is. Importantly, the team at Multex will bring valuable electrical and programming skills to Almond. In short, we believe that this acquisition strengthens both Almond and Multex and will assist us in delivering first class service and a greater product range.

We are also delighted to confirm the acquisition does not involve any loss of jobs, in fact, it has helped us create an additional skilled job already and we anticipate more will follow as we build on the great success Multex has always enjoyed.

Multex will become a division of Almond Engineering and will continue to trade using the Multex brand under Almond Engineering Limited. Over the coming months we will combine the two websites, with a new look and feel. We’ll send you an invitation to visit them once they are completed.
