WEC Group Ltd acquires 5750 Components Ltd

5750 Components Ltd was established nearly 15 years ago as one of the first laser cutting companies in the UK and employs 20 staff. WEC Group has purchased the company as a going concern to support their own laser division, Laser Engineering in Darwen.

‘This is an exciting time for the Group,’ explains Wayne Wild, Director and General Manager for Laser Engineering. ‘The purchase of the company supports the Group’s expansion strategy which includes the introduction of a new 26,500 purpose-built facility on Junction Street in Darwen.’

Due for completion in the coming months, the new site will house the Laser Engineering division of the Company and will enable the other divisions of the Group to expand into existing facilities.

A positive move for the North West, the strategic partnership between WEC Group and 5750 Components will assist in expanding the service offering of both companies within their own regions, UK and internationally.
