Continuing its rapid growth and investment strategy, Hone-All Precision has now acquired the roller manufacturing division of A.T Roberts Ltd. With three divisions within the Watford business, Hone-All will be taking on two divisions that encompass the production of rollers, cylinders, shafts and precision roller tube as well as shaft straightening and balancing for the print and packaging industry.
As part of the business purchase, Hone-All Precision has taken delivery of two specialised machines from A.T Roberts, a dynamic balancing machine and a straightening press.
Furthermore, the Leighton Buzzard deep hole boring and turning specialist has employed the expertise of A.T Roberts Managing Director Mr Nick Orford on a 12 month contract. This will ensure a smooth transition, a transfer of customer knowledge, product expertise and a continuing commitment to excellence in the manufacturing of precision rollers and components for the existing customer base. Commenting upon the business acquisition and the transition period, Mr Orford says: "The business sale has come around because I, and a number of my key staff are at retirement age.
