Formed in 2004, MPC are a small, dynamic company that specialise in providing subcontract machining services. The deal sees Supergrip acquire 100% of the business with all personnel joining the Supergrip team. An agreement has been made that the company founder, Michael Riley, will stay with the business through a transition period.
Darren Blackburn, Director at Supergrip said “This is an exciting development for Supergrip, MPC are a company that we have worked with for many years. When the opportunity arose to acquire the business it was one that we jumped at. This significantly increases our inhouse machining capability both in terms of CNC and manual machining operations and provides us with a platform to increase our service offering to clients. We believe that adding this level of CNC capability to our existing processes differentiates us from our competitors. Our in-house capability now includes engineering, project management, fabrication, CNC and manual machining, polyurethane production and product qualification testing. From a SURF point of view we are now providing both subsea products and topside hardware all manufactured within one company. This adds a significant benefit to our clients in terms of a lower cost offering, improved schedules and a simpler and more efficient project QHSE production and interface management process”.
