“More importantly, the deal will ensure the future of the business and its employees, as well as giving Metaltech the wider product portfolio of the Wallwork Group to offer our clients.

“The fact that the Wallwork Group is committed to continue processing in the North East was instrumental to the deal.”

He said: “This is a good fit for us, strengthening our range of metal heat treatments and hard-coating processes.
