Industrial Physics acquires C&W Specialist Equipment


Industrial Physics has purchased C&W Specialist Equipment Ltd, which specialises in the development and manufacture of corrosion test chambers.

C&W will become part of TQC Sheen BV, an innovative manufacturer of lab equipment to test and inspect surface and adhesion properties of paint and coatings.

Industrial Physics’ portfolio of brands addresses critical test and measurement needs of customers in a broad range of industries with an emphasis on packaging and packaging-related applications, including food and beverage, metal cans, flexible packaging, paper and plastics, paints and coatings, medical device and consumer electronics.

Industrial Physics companies help customers meet the ever-increasing test and quality standards required by demanding regulators, consumers and manufacturers.

Industrial Physics is a portfolio company of Union Park Capital, a private-equity firm that specialises in industrial technology investments.

C&W was founded in 1978 by Nigel Cremer and has experienced significant growth over the years by providing high-quality and innovative products.

With the addition of C&W Specialist Equipment Ltd, TQC Sheen BV has a more complete portfolio of products to serve customers requiring paint, coatings and surface analysis.

“With a large installed base of test chambers and strong brand recognition in the industry, we are very excited to add the C&W product line to the TQC Sheen product portfolio,” said Antoon van Osch, Managing Director of TQC Sheen BV.

Nigel Cremer, Managing Director of C&W, will continue as Managing Director reporting to Mr. van Osch.

“I am delighted to have Nigel join the TQC Sheen team. Nigel and his team are respected industry veterans with a strong track record of delivering high customer service and reliable products to global customers that are typically also buying from TQC Sheen,” said Antoon.

“We are very excited to be joining the Industrial Physics family of companies”, said Nigel.

“We have a strong product portfolio and loyal customers but have lacked the global sales and service reach of Industrial Physics.

"We will now be able to leverage Industrial Physics and its extensive network of channel partners to deliver value to customers anywhere in the world”.
