News: Acorn grows again


Acorn Industrial Services, already one of the largest power transmission distributors in the country, is expanding its operation with a new pneumatics division, a move that could lead to new jobs at its Rotherham HQ.

The company moved across the borough to Hellaby in 2013 and supplies bearings, power transmissions and linear systems to a global customer base. The move into the pneumatics market follows extensive talks with the world leading industrial automation company – Camozzi.

The new division, which will be based at Acorn's central distribution centre in Rotherham, could lead to a number of job opportunities, from extra warehouse roles to specialists in the pneumatics field.

The Camozzi Group is renowned across the globe for the production and manufacture of top quality automation products for over 50 years. The deal will see Acorn providing a wide range of Camozzi pneumatic products including cylinders, fittings, Filter-Regulator-Lubricator units (FRLs), tubing and valves.

Gavin Stacey, sales manager at Acorn Industrial Services, said: "Expanding into a new product sector is exciting news for Acorn and good news for our customers. Providing an even broader product range will make purchasing engineering components even easier.

"A key factor in the decision to partner with Camozzi was their exceptional cylinder manufacturing capabilities within the UK, manufacturing both standard and non-standard stroke cylinders within one hour. This unique service provides us with a same day delivery option on cylinders to offer our customers - a service unavailable from any other pneumatics manufacturer."

Adrian Farnham, director at Camozzi, added "Camozzi are proud of our new partnership with Acorn Industrial Services, who have become an official Camozzi distributor. Acorn are a leading distributor of high quality bearings, linear motion, power transmission and maintenance products. Camozzi are excited to be working with Acorn and we look forward to forging a successful relationship."

Since moving to larger, 40,000 sq ft premises, where it offers an impressive stockholding of over one million items, Acorn has secured a distributorship for German manufacturers Freudenberg Sealing Technologies and a deal to sell the NSK and RHP Bearings brands, as part of its growth and expansion plans.
