Somers Forge acquires A&B Richardson Engineering Black Country-based Somers Forge, the UK’s leading open die forge, has tripled its CNC machining capacity with the acquisition of A&B Richardson Engineering, a tool and die manufacturer situated in Oldbury.

The move is part of Somers Forge’s long-term strategy to expand it machining capacity and capabilities after seeing increased demand for finished components. The established machining facility and long-serving experienced machinists provides immediate capacity for fulfilling the recent order book growth. A&B Richardson has been a trusted sub-contract machining facility, used by Somers Forge for many years.

Alex Cross, Somers Forge production director, said: “Last year we made a million-pound investment on a new CNC vertical boring machine which will help us boost capacity, but we also recognised the need for greater capacity in the CNC milling area, so the acquisition of A&B Richardson was the perfect solution. The purchase has tripled our CNC machining capacity and further enhanced our capabilities, allowing us to continue to offer competitive lead times and products of the highest quality.”
