Coatings industry equipment supplier Elcometer (Manchester, United Kingdom) announced the acquisition of Sagola SA (Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain), a leading manufacturer and supplier of paint spray equipment to the automotive and industrial refinishing sectors.

“We are delighted to welcome Sagola into the Elcometer family,” says Michael Sellars, managing director of Elcometer. “Sagola’s range of high-quality spray guns, pumps, and filtration systems for the automotive and industrial markets sits perfectly alongside Elcometer’s range of blast, coating inspection, and ultrasonic NDT [nondestructive testing] equipment and takes Elcometer closer towards their strategic objective of providing a comprehensive range of products to meet their customers’ requirements—throughout the coatings process.”

The addition comes three years after the successful launch of Elcometer's abrasive blast equipment division.

“Elcometer’s values and growth plans are ideal for everyone at Sagola,” says Alejandro Sanchez, CEO and owner of Sagola SA. “Elcometer’s global office and distribution networks will allow Sagola to expand into new markets while allowing everyone at Sagola to focus on their continued growth in the automotive refinishing sector.”

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

“This is great news to the customers of Elcometer and Sagola, and the coatings industry as a whole,” adds Enrique Sanchez, operations and research director and owner at Sagola, “I am delighted that both Alejandro and I will continue to work at Sagola, as we enter the next chapter together.”
