Quaser Machine Tools acquires Winbro Technologies Group

Nov. 18, 2019
The acquisition of Winbro follows seven years of close cooperation between the two machine tool companies.

Five-axis machine tool maker Quaser Machine Tools (QMT; Taichung City, Taiwan) has acquired Winbro Group Technologies (Coalville, England), whose manufacturing solutions serve the aerospace and industrial gas turbine industries.

The acquisition of Winbro follows seven years of close cooperation between the two companies, during which time QMT built and supplied three- and five-axis bases for Winbro’s laser and electronic discharge machining (EDM) platforms for high-speed drilling.

The merger of the two businesses will open up opportunities for QMT within the growing aerospace industry through Winbro’s strong relationship and reputation within that sector. It also holds potential for Winbro’s technology to be modified and supplied to non-aerospace customers.

Together, the two companies will have joint sales in excess of $110 million and around 500 employees.
