Guyson Corp. Acquires Automated Blasting Systems
December 9, 2013—The Guyson Corporation of U.S.A. has announced the acquisition of all assets of Automated Blasting Systems, Inc., of South Windsor, CT. ABS has been a premier supplier of wet blast machines to the aerospace, automotive, cutting tool, electronics, metal working and other industries since 1988. The company was formed as a result of purchasing the “Vaqua” product line from The Spadone Machine Co., which made the slurry-blast equipment for over 40 years.
In making the announcement, Steve Byrnes, president of Guyson Corporation, stated that “We are excited about this significant expansion of our equipment offerings and the added growth potential of wet-blasting technology. Guyson USA and ABS share many of the same customers today. Guyson and ABS share many of the same goals and are dedicated to providing leading edge robotic and automated systems to customers around the world. Guyson is making a commitment to provide uninterrupted service to the customers of ABS with the employment of Richard Gillott, the former vice president and general manager of ABS.
“This acquisition is further evidence of the commitment by Guyson to continue its growth strategy by offering surface preparation and cleaning systems that deliver superior performance and exceptional value to our customers,” Steve Byrnes added.
All work-in-process machines, spare parts inventories, ABS laboratory testing equipment, design engineering assets or intellectual property and customer files will be relocated in the coming days from South Windsor, Connecticut, to Guyson Corporation’s 80,000 square foot plant in Saratoga Springs, New York.
