Millbrook buys Revolutionary Engineering
Test World owner Millbrook has announced its acquisition of US-based test service and equipment provider Revolutionary Engineering, Inc. The acquisition took place on 3 April. The company will continue to be led by Allen White, with backing by the wider Millbrook management team.
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. Millbrook says this latest acquisition is an important step in its strategy to expand capacity and capabilities in propulsion testing, including the testing of batteries, inverters and e-motors.
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.
“We are delighted to be joining Millbrook and Spectris,” says Allen White, president of Revolutionary Engineering. “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.”
“This latest acquisition perfectly complements our existing test capabilities,” says Alex Burns, president of Millbrook. “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.”
