Erodex completes TMS acquisition

Erodex Group has announced the 100% acquisition of Toolmaker Supplies Ltd (TMS) in a move that further strengthens its offer in EDM wire, wear parts and consumables. Founded in 2002, TMS was an independent stockist and supplier of wire EDM spare parts and consumables in the UK.

The business is now trading under the Erodex brand and operating from the Erodex UK headquarters in Halesowen. Several sales personnel from TMS have joined the Erodex team and will continue to support TMS customers with their EDM product requirements.

Erodex Group says the move makes it the UK’s largest distributor of brass and coated EDM wires, as well as the largest distributor of wear parts for all EDM machine brands.

Erodex has enjoyed a strong working relationship with manufacturer Bedra (Berkenhoff) for many years, introducing many next-generation coated wire products to the UK under exclusive agreements. Erodex engineers work closely with customers to ensure the delivery of optimum performance.

Erodex director Steve Rolinson says: “Erodex are delighted to have acquired TMS to further strengthen our position as market leader in the UK for EDM wire, wear parts and consumables. Like Erodex, TMS had developed a strong reputation over many years for the quality of its service and breadth of product range servicing the EDM industry. This level of synergy with our core values ensured that acquiring the trade and assets of the company made complete sense and has ensured for a swift integration.”
