Shaftesbury-based Darren Taylor Holdings Ltd has bought Dorchester-based Dorset Aluminium Products Ltd.
 
Dorset Aluminium Products Ltd, founded in 1971, is a sub-contract anodiser. They employ approx. 30 members of staff and provide a full in-house manufacturing, metal spinning and finishing service. During the pandemic, they finished vital pieces needed in Covid testing machines.
 
Until recently the company, which has an annual turnover of £1.5m, was owned by Tim Perry, who retired in 2007 and Noel Hope. Hope will remain in the business as managing director. There will be no change to the running of the business.
 
Darren Taylor Holdings also owns Aftech Engineering in Swindon, which specialises in all areas of metal fabrications including laser cutting, welding, drilling, and sawing.
 
Taylor said: “I am very pleased to have negotiated a successful deal with Tim and Noel. Dorset Aluminium Products is a solid, successful engineering business that fits nicely with our other engineering firm, Aftech Engineering. I am impressed with the business Tim and Noel have built and am pleased to be part of its future.”
 
Hope commented: “It was a pleasure working with Tim for so many years. I am proud of the company we built, the staff we employ and the products we produce. As a team, we worked hard during Covid to keep supplying the parts needed for the Covid testing machine. This is a new chapter for the company, and we are looking forward to building a bigger and better company with Darren on board.”
