Elcometer Ltd. (Manchester, United Kingdom) recently announced that it had acquired Sagola SA (Vitoria Gasteiz, Spain), a leading paint spray equipment manufacturer and supplier to the automotive and industrial refinishing sectors.

Elcometer is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and supply of inspection equipment that serves the coatings, concrete, and metal detection industries. Its acquisition of Sagola SA comes three years after the successful launch of its abrasive blast equipment division.

“We are delighted to welcome Sagola into the Elcometer family,” says Michael Sellars, managing director of Elcometer. “Sagola’s industry leading 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 [non-destructive 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.”

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

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