William Rowland (WR) today acquired EF Westaway (Westaways), Sheffield, UK bringing two companies with strong heritage together.

The combined businesses become stronger in serving castings and forgings companies with a broader array of products and services.

“Further to this acquisition, William Rowland can now provide our customers with both the metals to produce cast and forged components, and the services to prepare the surfaces of these components. We now operate at the very beginning and end of the supply chain to help our customers address their own markets.

We look forward to further enhancing our capabilities to improve quality of service provision and compress lead times for customers. This acquisition is the first step on that path and we look forward to continued input from our customers to prioritise our next steps.’’
