Roxboro Group PLC

Roxboro Group PLC (now known as Dialight PLC) acquired the business of Norwich Aero Products Inc. (Norwich) from a group of private investors and management. Nowich was integrated into Roxboro’s Weston Aerospace operation located in Hampshire, United Kingdom.

Both Norwich and Weston manufacture temperature sensors used primarily in aerospace applications as well as environmentally demanding industrial applications. Key customers of Norwich included Pratt & Whitney and GE Aero Engines, while Weston served IAE and Rolls Royce in Europe. The merger was immediately synergistic, allowing Norwich to sell qualified components and replacement parts to US Customers, while Weston picked up the European spares and service business for Norwich.

Roxboro integrated the two companies and increased sales over 200%, four years after completing the acquisition Roxboro sold its Weston aerospace sensors division to Esterline Technologies for £55 million.
