Elcometer Acquires Sagola SA


Inspection and blast equipment manufacturer Elcometer Ltd. (Manchester, United Kingdom) announced last month that it had acquired Spanish company Sagola SA, a paint spray equipment manufacturer and supplier.

Elcometer intends to leverage Sagola’s products into its automotive and industrial refinishing sectors.

"We are delighted to welcome Sagola into the Elcometer family," said Michael Sellars, Managing Director of Elcometer. "Sagola’s industry leading range of high quality spray guns, pumps and filtration systems for the automotive & industrial markets sits perfectly alongside Elcometer’s range of blast, coating inspection and ultrasonic NDT equipment and takes Elcometer closer towards their strategic objective of providing a comprehensive range of products to meet their customers’ requirements—throughout the coatings process."

According to CEO and Owner of Sagola SA, Alejandro Sanchez, the combination of networks will allow Sagola to expand into new markets and allow the company to focus on its continued growth in the automotive refinishing sector.

"This is great news to the customers of Elcometer and Sagola and the Coatings Industry as a whole," commented Enrique Sanchez, Operations and Research Director and Owner of Sagola, "I am delighted that both Alejandro and I will continue to work at Sagola, as we enter the next chapter together."
