Prepare for blast-off

Airblast, the Cambridgeshire-based manufacturer of surface preparation and coating equipment, recently acquired the Eurospray Group for an undisclosed sum.


This acquisition of the spray finishing plant and equipment suppplier is said to mark a significant step in the implementation of Airblast’s strategy to develop its product portfolio, technical support capability and after-sales services.


The new company will trade as Airblast-Eurospray and will be based at Airblast’s premises in Langtoft. Eurospray’s existing bases in Shepstead, Bournemouth and Glasgow will be retained, as will the sales, technical support and management staff.


Jon Cook, managing director of Airblast, said: ‘The Eurospray Group is a strong business with an excellent track record and a highly regarded sales and technical team.


‘The synergy between the manufacturing and marketing strength here at Airblast coupled to the sales, technical knowledge and logistics operation at Eurospray will produce an expansion in the products and services we offer to customers of both operations.They were a logical partner to accelerate the growth of our business.’
