Original Press Release
Telamon Corporation's Industrial Solutions Acquires Westbrook Mfg. Inc.
Press release date: Jul 23, 2014
Telamon’s Industrial Solutions division engineers high quality, cost competitive assembly and kitting solutions to simplify manufacturing processes while streamlining and consolidating the supply chain.
Westbrook Mfg. Inc. is headquartered in Dayton, Ohio and their primary manufacturing facility is located in Fresnillo, Mexico. Westbrook was founded in 1977 and since then has grown into a global leader in contract manufacturing with over 400 employees globally. Their core activities are focused on the assembly of components and custom wire harnesses.
Stanley Chen, Telamon’s COO, explained that this acquisition was a well-planned, strategic growth decision. “We have been looking at the harness industry for a while now. We believe the transportation market is primed for growth with increasing safety requirements and evolution of telematics. Finding a company with similar operating philosophies and culture that would provide an entry into this market was a challenge. That is why we were excited to find a company of Westbrook’s caliber.”
Telamon’s acquisition of Westbrook will not affect current operations at any of either company’s facilities. It will be “business as usual” with the exception of the name change to Telamon. Westbrook’s customers can expect the same superior level of service and high quality products that is the hallmark of Westbrook. “In making this acquisition, we are adding additional value to both organizations. We believe that current Telamon services can add value to Westbrook customers and Westbrook services can add value to Telamon customers,” commented Mr. Chen.
