“We intend retaining the Femco Mining Motors brand and, in doing so, keeping the well respected capabilities for its customer base.
“M&C will continue to repair and manufacture the current range of Femco Mining Motors' products,” says MD Gavin Garland.
“Femco Mining Motors has a strong reputation as a specialist supplier to this market, being an innovative engineering focused original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and repairer,” he says.
“Operating from our Cleveland facility, where we have 8 500 square meters under cover and a workforce of 160-strong, we aim to use the acquisition to develop a leading role in the manufacture and repair of motors for underground flameproof applications,” says Garland.
The move combines the M&C financial and management strengths with Femco Mining Motors' engineering, design and manufacturing capabilities to create a new specialist service provide in the market.
