UK group EC Electronics buys Dutch PCBA specialist
UK-headquartered EC Electronics has acquired Liad Electronics, which specialises in printed circuit board assembly.
EC says the takeover, which was facilitated by Rockpool Investments, will give it a greater presence in mainland Europe and more manufacturing capacity.
Phil Simmonds, chief executive of EC Electronics, said: "We are very excited about Liad Electronics joining the EC Group and working with the incredibly experienced team there. Liad will now be the foundation for the next stage of our growth plans in mainland Europe and a key part of the future success of the group."
