London electronics specialist acquired by £80m medical company
Creo Medical Group PLC, a medical device company focused on surgical endoscopy, announced the acquisition of Essex based radio and microwave electronics specialist Aber Electronics Limited.
Creo is an existing customer of Aber, using its products within the CROMA Advanced Energy Platform.
This acquisition will complement Creo’s research, design and manufacturing processes, provide additional specialist microwave and radio frequency capability within the business and enhance a key element of the group’s supply chain.
Creo anticipates leveraging the additional resource that it has acquired to further develop its Kamaptive Technology, the advanced energy which powers the CROMA Platform.
Craig Gulliford, chief executive officer of Creo, said: “Being an existing customer of Aber and having worked closely with the management team for a number of years, we are familiar with the quality of its products and the team there, and I’d like to welcome them all to the Creo Group.
“This acquisition fits with the ‘Buy’ aspect of our three-tiered ‘Build, Buy, Partner’ strategy, in acquiring a company with existing manufacturing operations, to complement and add capability in Creo’s product development and production.”
Andrew Haynes, managing director of Aber Electronics, added: “We are pleased to join Creo Medical, with which we have a longstanding business relationship. We look forward to providing our specialist Microwave and RF products, and development and manufacturing capability as part of the Creo Group.”
