Penny + Giles, a business unit of Curtiss-Wright Controls and a designer and manufacturer of position sensors, solenoids, and joystick controllers, has completed the operational integration of industrial solenoid manufacturer Mechetronics Limited into its Penny + Giles Controls division in South Wales. The company has also increased capacity at the Cwmfelinfach design and manufacturing facility to accommodate the new product range.
The integration of Mechetronics provides extensive experience in the design of industrial solenoids to complement our existing aerospace and defence solenoid businesses in North America and Europe, said David Adams, co-chief operating officer of Curtiss-Wright Corporation.
Mechetronics is a global supplier of solenoids and solenoid valves to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and applications benefiting from these products include business machines, switchgear and vehicle braking systems.
The industrial solenoid design resource will remain in Cwmfelinfach and the site's manufacturing resource, together with a facility in Zhuhai, China, will service global markets.
