Gloucestershire-based Arc Energy Resources, the weld overlay cladding and fabrication company, has acquired precision machining company CLG Engineering, based in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.
Arc Energy Resources provides corrosion-resistant weld overlay cladding services. Its fabrication department holds ASME U and U2 Stamps, and manufactures radiographic-quality specialist equipment, including pressure vessels, spools, pig launchers, wellhead equipment and nuclear devices.
CLG Engineering provides CNC (computer numerical control) milling, CNC turning and assembly services. Certified to ISO 9001, and with over 40 years’ engineering experience, their team can produce parts from 25mm to 1.25m in length, and up to 18in diameter, within tight tolerances.
The acquisition means that Arc Energy Resources’ 80 employees are supplemented by CLG Engineering’s 14, to create a stronger team with a wider mix of skills. Both companies are supported by teams of experienced project managers, inspectors and welding engineers, with access to a wide range of auxiliary processes in-house, including heat treatment, non-destructive testing (NDT) and CMM (coordinate measuring machine) inspection.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for both companies,” said ARC Energy Resources Managing Director, Andrew Robinson, on behalf of both companies. “CLG Engineering’s precision machining capability perfectly complements Arc Energy Resources’ cladding and fabrication offering. The group structure enables us to offer a one-stop-shop for all our clients’ engineering requirements, from design and material supply through to welding, cladding, machining, NDT, pressure testing, surface finishing and project management.”
