Mechtech Automation Group
Mechtech Automation Group (MAG) design, manufacture and install sophisticated automated and robotic productions systems across a range of sectors including automotive, medical, industrial, aerospace, food preparation and pharmaceuticals.
A number of the automated and robotic production systems manufactured are designed as part of large, complex and expensive projects for blue chip customers such as Rolls Royce, Dyson, and Ricoh. MAG have also developed a range of “plug & play” automated products to complement their bespoke systems and sell these under the Robopod banner. The third leg of the business is a support and service arm; this is fairly embryonic but has significant potential. Historically MAG have sold predominantly into the UK automotive market place but over the last few years the group has begun to diversify into other growth markets such as aerospace (Rolls Royce), medtech (Stryker, De Puy) and general industrials (Dyson), and have won some prestigious contracts in these sectors. In addition MAG has been successful in opening up new geographic areas including Ireland, Poland, and Malaysia.
In March 2020 FEL supported a management to buy out from Richard Evans, the founder and former CEO. As part of this process we introduced a new MD, Dan Murthi, ex MPac PLC (formerly Molins PLC). In addition to the appointment of Dan and in trying to position the business for growth and to support the opportunity offered by Industry 4.0, we have already made a number of key appointments to help bolster and strengthen the existing management team.
Paul Isaacs is Chairman of the Group.
