Lee Spring moves for Longcroft Engineering

Global manufacturer of springs Lee Spring has acquired UK-based Longcroft Engineering, a manufacturer of custom springs operating in Todmorden, Lancashire.

Headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, Lee Spring is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company with multiple facilities in the US as well as the UK – in Wokingham – Germany, Mexico, China and India.

“The acquisition of Longcroft Engineering expands our capabilities to support continued growth within the UK and across the greater European market,” said Lee Spring CEO Steve Kempf.

“Longcroft Engineering has been a key strategic partner of Lee Spring for many years, with a complementary skill set that is a natural fit for the enhancement of our global operations. They are a talented team with broad spring manufacturing experience and particular expertise in short-run prototyping of complex springs made from both wire as well as flat materials.

“Longcroft Engineering will continue to serve customers from their existing facility in Todmorden, plus they will now also have access to a wider range of capabilities through Lee Spring’s global manufacturing operations. This acquisition enhances the offering available to Lee Spring customers worldwide with expanded manufacturing operations located in the UK.”
