WesCom Group acquires PW Defence Ltd

Emergency distress signal manufacturer WesCom has expanded its presence in the defence sector by acquiring UK-based defence signalling manufacturer, PW Defence Ltd. (PWD).

The company says the acquisition will enable it to expand its defence product portfolio and international sales network, whilst benefitting from new manufacturing and testing facilities.

WesCom, headquartered in Hampshire, has a long history in the defence market and is the supplier of choice for specialist pyrotechnic signalling and illumination, training and simulation and obstacle clearance products. With its similar heritage and respected product range, with the addition of security products, Derbyshire based PW Defence is a natural fit.

“This acquisition accomplishes a significant step forward in the strategy to expand our footprint within the global defence sector. It will enable the business to offer a much wider product portfolio to an expanded customer base,” says WesCom Chief Executive Officer, Ross Wilkinson.

“The purchase of PW Defence will allow us to further enhance our operational capability with a UK-based, high-class manufacturing and testing facility.”
