Regent Assay advised AWS Electronics on its second bolt on acquisition of Cemgraft resulting in the enlarged group now having annual sales of approximately £30m.

Cemgraft specialises in printed circuit board surface mount technology having invested significantly in BGA and micro BGA capabilities at their site near Newbury. Cemgraft also has a dedicated rapid prototyping department, and offers complete box build manufacturing and product support on behalf of its clients.

David Tucker commented: “This latest acquisition means that AWS customers not only have focused technical expertise but are also supported by a group with capability and scale and good UK geographic coverage.”
