Engineering company Applied Automation (UK) Ltd has increased its precision engineering capabilities following the recent acquisition of PTG Workholding Ltd.

Bristol-based PTG has been trading for over 30 years and supplies both UK and overseas markets with expanding mandrels capable of automatic and manual clamping in component bores. Thanks to their outstanding accuracy PTG’s mandrels deliver excellent holding power that can resist even the harshest cutting forces often imposed on the work piece.

Managing director of Applied Automation David Rowe said: “We’ve been looking to increase our existing precision engineering offering and with the purchase of PTG Workholding we will now be able to manufacture custom jigs and fixtures along with specials based around PTG’s standard expanding mandrel range.”

“It’s a great fit for our business and we’re firmly committed to continue delivering high quality engineered parts at great prices, which was the bedrock of PTG Workholding’s success for more than three decades, to both existing and new customers”, he added. 

Applied Automation (UK) Ltd is an internationally-renowned supplier of high-quality automation and control equipment. Based in Plymouth, with satellite offices and warehouses in both Cardiff and Portsmouth, they design, manufacture and deliver both standard or bespoke automation and control solutions for industrial engineering, the marine sector and smart homes.

The company employs over 150 designers, engineers, project managers, sales engineers and professional specialists who work in a number of specialist divisions and wholly owned subsidiaries, which enables them to provide high levels of technical support and customer service across a number of industry sectors.
