Techsil and M-tec merger complete

UK-based Techsil has announced that, following its acquisition of aerospace and defence industry suppliers M-tec in May 2017, the two companies have now fully merged.

M-tec, now trading under the Techsil banner, was formed in 1983 by Smiths Industries. The company was set up specifically to deal with the aerospace and defence market where certification and lot traceability are essential. M-tec specialises in supplying aerospace adhesives, gaskets, o-rings, paints and lubricants.

Techsil is a global supplier of industrial RTV silicones, adhesives, sealants, encapsulants, conformal coatings, tapes and dispensing equipment to a wide range of manufacturing industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical, electronics and LED lighting.

Further management changes include MD Paul Hughes moving to the position of group company chairman and Chris Dilley, pictured above, stepping into the role of managing director.

Dilley commented: “This is an exciting time for Techsil; our core business is growing and we have had an exceptional year. The benefits of combining these two complementary companies were compelling. With M-tec coming under the Techsil umbrella, we can enjoy operational benefits that were not possible when trading separately.”

And he added: “Techsil and M-tec supply products from a number of leading manufacturers with whom we have established close relationships over many years and therefore are able to provide our customers with an excellent level of service, together with full technical back-up.”
