The business and assets of California-based Technical Metal Finishing (TMF) have been acquired by Nasmyth Group as part of that company’s implementation of an international growth strategy. TMF (to be known as Nasmyth TMF) offers a range of metal surface finishing capabilities including precision masking, anodizing and chemical film coatings, passivation, painting and non-destructive testing. According to the Nasmyth Group, TMF complements its four metal-surface-finishing businesses in the UK providing precise, aerospace industry- and Nadcap-approved treatments for metals.
The acquisition allows for technology transfers in both directions, expansion resulting from the introduction of new customers, and further development of new processes and the funding of future growth, said Chris Sosa, Nasmyth TMF’s general manager.
Craig Hanriot, the former owner of TMF, will be working with the global Nasmyth team to identify and develop new metal finishing opportunities in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
