/EINPresswire.com/13 April 2010, New York – MCP Group SA is organizing their Wellingborough UK operation into Atlumin Energy Inc. MCP Group SA is the owner of both entities. The combined entity will operate under the name Atlumin Energy while the MCP brand name will be retained for existing products. Atlumin and MCP Wellingborough have complementary core competencies that will enable the combined organization to provide customers with a more complete and streamlined solution. Atlumin / MCP products and services extend from sourcing and refining through fabricating and reclaiming of specialty metals based products, the “Atlumin Materials Loop”.
Laurent Raskin, CEO of MCP Group SA said: “We believe this is a powerful strategic combination. Adding Atlumin leadership and supporting additional investment in Wellingborough accelerates and broadens the MCP Wellingborough value proposition. By leveraging the diversified operations and employee skill sets of both organizations, this combined company is well positioned in a marketplace full of opportunities. Under the leadership of Gregory Phipps, we are confident the integration of our businesses will create tremendous value for our customers and provide opportunities for our employees.”
Expansion of development capability and manufacturing capacity are the primary goals of Atlumin’s integration of the MCP Wellingborough operations. This integration will enable faster customization to deliver against specific needs of customers in rapidly changing markets. Certain products and services will be manufactured at both Atlumin / MCP Wellingborough UK and Sunnyvale, California facilities. Atlumin’s establishment of multiple facilities with copy-exact manufacturing and quality management is part of a long-term strategy to reduce supply risks for customers and streamline logistics.
Gregory Phipps, President of Atlumin commented: “through this integration, we’re creating a world-class leader in specialty materials and metals. By combining MCP Wellingborough’s lean, high volume manufacturing platform with Atlumin’s innovative development and attentive account teams, the net result will be best-in-class manufacturing on a global basis. The complementary synergies will substantially increase our business scale and expand our customer base. This is another step in our strategy to compress the material supply chain and offer increased system level efficiency to our customers, thereby helping them to be more competitive.”
This new combination will benefit from complementary technologies, a strong combined management team, and a shared focus on reliability and quality. The result is a stronger company that provides more value to its customers. The companies expect synergies through this integration, thereby making the integrated operations leaner and faster.
