Arden Group announces acquisition of Lasercomb Dies

Arden Group Lasercomb Acquisition

The Arden Group has announced the acquisition of Lasercomb Dies, cementing our position as the largest die-maker in the UK.

Lasercomb Dies, which has a die-making and engraving arm, has a manufacturing site in Redditch with a team of around 80 employees, and operations will continue as normal following the take-over.

Martin Poynter, Managing Director of the Arden Group, said: “Much like Arden, Lasercomb is a leading name in die-making and engraving, so we’re delighted to bring their skills and expertise in the flatbed folding carton market into the Arden Group. While it will be very much business as usual for the long-established Lasercomb brand, we’re excited about the opportunities it presents for our customers and our combined workforce.

“With Arden located in the North and Lasercomb in the Midlands, this acquisition will support our ambitions to expand our operations and better meet the needs of our customers across the UK and beyond, as we consolidate our efforts and share our combined knowledge of the industry.

“In today’s economic climate, ensuring certainty in the supply chain is paramount. With this acquisition, we are better positioned to mitigate risks and guarantee continuity for our customers, while strengthening our position within the market as the largest die-maker in the UK.”
