WesCom Group is delighted to announce the acquisition of UK-based military pyrotechnics manufacturer, PW Defence Ltd. (PWD).
The acquisition will enable WesCom to expand its defence product portfolio and international sales network, whilst benefiting from new manufacturing and testing facilities.
WesCom, which is headquartered in Havant, Hampshire, has a long history in the defence market and is the supplier of choice for specialist pyrotechnic signalling & illumination, training & simulation and obstacle clearance products. PW Defence, which is based in Draycott, Derbyshire, has a similar heritage and respected product range, with the addition of security products, and so is a natural fit.
WesCom Chief Executive Officer, Ross Wilkinson, says, “This acquisition forms a significant step forward in the strategy to increase our footprint within the global survival market with the first step in the defence sector. It enables the business to offer a much wider product portfolio to an expanded customer base.”
