Ascott Acquired by The Schunk Group

We are very pleased and excited to announce that Ascott has been acquired by the Schunk Group in a deal that offers huge potential growth that will continue to strengthen our position as a world leader in corrosion testing equipment.

The knowledge and experience that Ascott has accumulated over the decades has generated a great deal of interest from other businesses.  Weiss Technik, a subsidiary of the German owned Schunk Group, recognised the strength and growth of Ascott and it was agreed that the two companies would complement each other perfectly and create significant opportunities for both brands around the world.

Adrian Wain, Managing Director of Ascott Analytical stated “There is a natural synergy between Ascott and Weiss Technik and we’re very excited about the future.  Going forward, with the combined resources and expertise that we now have; we will go from strength to strength”

Dr. Arno Roth, CEO of the Schunk Group added “Ascott is a very good fit for the Schunk Group. With this purchase, we are significantly expanding the market position of our subsidiary Weiss Technik in the field of corrosion testing”

“Weiss Technik and Ascott together are number three in the global market for corrosion testing equipment, the two companies complement each other perfectly” explained Peter R. Manolopoulos, Member of the Executive Board of the Schunk Group and responsible for Weiss Technik.

Manufacturing and the day to day running of Ascott will continue at the Tamworth factory and Head Office, where the news of the acquisition was announced recently, and representatives of the Schunk Group were welcomed to Ascott.
