In Source Material 8, Sales Director and General Manager (Portland) Gavin Drake gave us a write up on the history of our Portland facility and how it came to be...
In April 1999, Canford bought Swift Precision Engineering, a partnership situated on the Isle of Portland, Dorset. It would be fair to say that this acquisition raised a few eyebrows at the time. What would a thriving business based in Washington, Tyne and Wear, possibly want with a small, failing video connector manufacturing company, 375 miles away, at the opposite end of the country?
Iain Elliott commented at the time: "the acquisition of Swift represents a major opportunity for the Group. Not only can we expand our manufacturing capability, but we can also look further afield and explore new markets. We expect that the acquisition will add around one million pounds a year to company turnover".
