Millbrook is pleased to announce that on 3rd April it acquired Revolutionary Engineering, Inc., a test service and equipment provider headquartered in the US, with presence in China and Germany.
Revolutionary Engineering specialises in driveline system and component test services and solutions. It deploys the best technical specialists and project managers in the business to offer test services and equipment to customers in the automotive, transport and petrochemical industries. This latest acquisition is an important step in Millbrook’s strategy to expand its capacity and capabilities in propulsion testing, including the testing of batteries, inverters and e-motors.
Allen White will continue to lead the company, backed by the wider Millbrook management team. Customers can have confidence that Millbrook Revolutionary Engineering will benefit from access to Millbrook’s business processes, technical know-how and experience of investing to upgrade test facilities.
We are delighted to be joining Millbrook and Spectris. There are many areas of overlap between Revolutionary Engineering and Millbrook and we also expect to benefit from Spectris’ scale and reach. We can see only positives for our customers, employees and suppliers from this deal as they look to grow the business.
A number of Millbrook Revolutionary Engineering’s customers are already customers of Millbrook and so will be able to procure a broader range of test services and test facilities through a single contract. Millbrook will also be able to support customers when they decide to test in-house, as well as when they outsource testing.
This latest acquisition perfectly complements our existing test capabilities. We have a strong track record of growing similar test service businesses, and we understand very well the equipment side of Revolutionary Engineering’s offering. We are committed to delivering the highest levels of customer service and technical expertise across all sites, and very much look forward to working with our new colleagues in the US, China and Germany to continue to achieve our aims.
