BEP Surface Technologies, an electroplating surface finishing specialist, has announced the acquisition of Plating Solutions in Huddersfield to accelerate its growth strategy.

Plating Solutions is a specialised metal finishing plant design and equipment consultancy launched 20 years ago by industry luminary John Torr. The business boasts a raft of UK and international clients and is a chemical stockist for plating solutions.

Established more than half a century ago, BEP operates in the plastics, defence, energy, power generation, and nuclear sectors, offering solutions to contemporary challenges in industries, including electric vehicle (EV) battery production.

The deal will allow for the eventual retirement of Torr, who will take a consultant’s role and lead a team of commercial staff and chemical engineers.

This acquisition marks another milestone for BEP, which recently launched BEP Solutions to accelerate international R&D partnerships to solve global challenges in surface coating.

Andrew McClusky, managing director of BEP Surface Technologies, said: “John’s stellar reputation in innovation and problem-solving has been instrumental in providing cutting-edge solutions to clients across the UK and internationally. Our recently launched innovation arm, BEP Solutions, will benefit from his deep understanding of process chemistry and commitment to excellence, which have earned him recognition as a leader in the field.”
