At Pivot, we are always looking for new ways to expand our global capabilities, from electronics hardware and software design services to manufacturing and developing new products.
We are pleased to announce our recent acquisition of A2E Limited, an award-winning design and engineering solutions firm in the oil and gas, defense and security, smart energy, medical, and life science industries.
Based in Livingston in Edinburgh, Scotland, A2E Limited specializes in single-source solutions. The 17-year-old company has extensive development capabilities for hardware and software, and is an expert in concept development and design, prototype testing, and design for manufacturing (DFM).
David Ross, Managing Director of A2E Limited, remarks that the acquisition “will help serve our clients with expanded team of experts, capabilities, resources and locations globally. We are very optimistic about our affiliation with Pivot and its effect for our clients and our employees.”
With A2E Limited, Pivot covers an impressive global roster of over 100 product design engineers, and an overall global organization of over 650 associates. With facilities throughout the US, UK, and Asia, Pivot’s company-owned global resources are uniquely able to produce a wide range of products with the world’s most efficient and effective manufacturing processes.
As noted in a press release, Mark Dohnalek, President and CEO, describes the acquisition as a “calibrated approach to organic and acquired competencies and capacity, expertise and assets” that ultimately “help customers meet market needs and global clients needs most effectively.”
Mark Dohnalek also told the press, “Over the last five years, we have an annual growth of 141%, increased our staff from 136 to 650, and have facilities in 10 locations around the world. This approach ensures that we are able to respond to the needs and changes such as the imposition of China taxes and tariffs with speed and agility by providing alternative options and solutions for our clients. We have also invested in SMT mirrored technology in the US and Asia so that we can simultaneously manufacture products in two continents to optimize output and respond to challenges or opportunities.”
The President and CEO affirms that he is “committed to ensuring that Pivot has the global capabilities to design and manufacture in the US, UK and Asia so that we can deliver the most efficient solution for our clients all over the world.”
