Roosen Industries acquires Smits Machinefabriek and A.S.T. Suspension
"We are further expanding our possibilities as a total provider in the metal and mechatronics market."
Roosen Industries, an internationally oriented family business, specialized in high precision CNC machining, sheet metal working, industrial handling (BPL), stable construction for equestrian and mechatronics assembly with production units in Eersel (the Netherlands) Arendonk (Belgium), Haelen (the Netherlands) and Kanpur (India) has reached an agreement on the acquisition of Smits machinefabriek from Valkenswaard and subsidiary AST Suspension.
Smits machinefabriek specializes in small to large series of machine parts and mechanical assemblies for industry, from the development phase to final assembly and testing if desired. Smits machinefabriek is, among other things, active as a supplier to the semiconductor industry, electron microscopy, as a manufacturer of high-precision parts for medical scanning equipment and widely available in general mechanical engineering.
A.S.T. Suspension develops and produces high quality AST shock absorbers and premium Moton shock absorbers for the car (racing), special vehicles and many industrial applications.
Peter Smits: "It is a nice strategic next step for Smits to go all the way together with Roosen Industries to an even higher level and to be able to use our specialist expertise even more broadly." The specialisms include producing medium to large precision parts with the latest CNC techniques, such as turning the CNC carousel to about 1800 mm, a wide variety of robotised CNC turning machines and various automated 4 & 5 axis milling machining centers of various sizes can be used.
In addition, the specialization in CNC circular grinding and honing is a unique possibility that is rarely found elsewhere.
As part of Roosen Industries we are now able to draw attention to our production possibilities for an even broader customer base and we think we can continue to grow internationally. For example, the combination of producing precision parts in India will greatly strengthen the competitive position. "
