Nèos International Limited announce the acquisition of Luxfer Superform (UK), completed on the 13th of September 2021

Date 30/09/ 2021 MEDIA RELEASE:  

Superform, now renamed to Nèos Superform Limited, is recognised as the world leader for Aluminium Superplastically formed components, in low to medium volume, for the Automotive, Aerospace, Rail and Architectural Industries.

The company offers the complete in-house design, development, manufacture solution, through to complex assembly, across two specialist sites covering 130,000 sq/ft, located in Worcester and Kidderminster. ​

​With a committed ‘Customer First’ culture, Superform offers a collaborative concept design, resulting in reductions in part count, weight, and assembly.​​

Its premium technology creates lightweight, high strength complex geometry with improved aesthetics and the company uses this advanced technology to good affect for its global customer base, supplying some of the world’s leading premium brands.

Simon Forrester, the newly appointed Managing Director said:

“After a period of diligence to find the right owner of Superform, it fills me with great excitement that Superform is now part of the Nèos International group. Superform has operated successfully as a business since 1974, but the capabilities and synergies that the Nèos group provide will accelerate growth opportunities and truly take Nèos Superform to the next level.

 Our dedicated team will be part of a one stop shop for new and existing customers, covering all markets. Providing a wider offering of technologies with greater flexibility and agility to customer needs.”

Carl Roberts, Nèos International CEO commented:

Having worked closely with the Luxfer Group and its senior team over the past few months, we have seen the vast array of talent and capability that the company has to offer, which compliments its technological excellence. Couple this with the synergy that we already hold within our Engineering Group it is hugely satisfying to be able to acquire Superform and add its specialist supply, and valued customers, to the Nèos International portfolio.

 We now offer our wider customer base any potential combination from our Cold Pressings from our Specialist Prototype Automotive team, Composite Component Manufacture from our Purpose-Built Composite Facility and now the option for specialist Superplastically formed Components.

 We are excited to meet and develop with our new customer base under Superform and look forward to offering our long-term support for their new programmes.”
